Pass the Mic: The History of Hip-Hop

When: Sat., Jan. 14, 2-4 p.m. 2017

Hip Hop is a celebration of diversity and has created a culture that incorporates ethnicity, art, politics, fashion, technology and urban life. Hip Hop features many artists who choose to feature socially conscious and politically oriented lyrics that are considered alternative or underground. Hip hop is inherently political, through the language used by artists. Hip Hop uses language as a weapon that pushes the envelope and provokes people. Join for this talk about the history of hip-hop as part of DreamWeek.
