Letter to the President
Witness rap's birth, beginning with the civil rights movement and the genre's progression from music featured at weekend block parties to its lyrics being debated in the halls of Congress. This volatile documentary looks at President Ronald Reagan's policies (which negatively affected minorities) and how they inspired pioneer hip-hoppers such as Grandmaster Melle Mel and Run DMC to rap about the inequities in song.
