Thursday September 10 at 6:30pm in the Langston Room of Busboys and Poets, 2021 14th Street NW editor and chief of The Crisis magazine, Jabari Asim will interview marketing expert Erin Patton and explore how hip hop culture has turned into a sales tool for everything from sneakers, jewelry to alcohol and films. This event is free and open to the public.

  1. I went to the event tonight and had an enjoyable time. Erin Patton was impressive. I hope to have him come and speak at Georgetown University. I even copped a free copy of his book and got it autographed. Thank for the notice about the event on this blog.
