Meet Monica Miller, Professor of Hip Hop

Dr. Monica R. Miller is a visiting Assistant Professor in Lewis and Clark’s Religious Studies department. She earned her master’s degree from Drew University and her Ph.D. from Chicago Theological Seminary. She’s an expert in religion in Pop Culture. Miller says that Hip Hop gets blamed for all the ills that afflict poor urban communities, while Black and Latino youth get labeled as deviant, nihilistic or just plain bad. But Hip Hop doesn’t deserve this bad rap, Miller says. Her first book, “Religion and Hip Hop,” will hit stores Aug. 1. She spoke to The Skanner News July 17, in downtown Portland.
