Michon Benson, PhD (Rice University), serves as Visiting Professor of African American Literature at Texas Southern University. Her background includes public education, non-profit arts administration, and community development. Her research focuses on resistance and survival in Black youth popular cultural forms, particularly rap music and cinema.
