Parallel but Intersecting Paths

(p.141) Conclusion
The Street Is My Pulpit

Mwenda Ntarangwi

University of Illinois Press

This concluding chapter contains reflections on the parallels and intersections occurring throughout the major themes discussed in the book, the author's own life and that of Juliani's, Kenyan and U.S. popular culture, and of course, Christianity and hip hop. It also contains a brief survey of public opinion generated through social media regarding Juliani and his importance as a Christian hip hop artist. As a genre, hip hop combines the creativity of individual artists with the global relevance of its message. The same can be said of Christianity, where individual convictions resonate with the sensibilities of many. The chapter emphasizes the parallels and intersections between the two, before concluding with some final reflections on Juliani's impact as a Christian hip hop artist.

Keywords:   Juliani, popular culture, Christianity, hip hop, youth
