Comprehending Hip Hop Series : History…Music…Culture
Monday, October 23, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
What does hip hop mean to you? What does hip hop mean to the world? Why does it even matter? Join in critical conversations and dynamic discussions as we embark on a deeper understanding of this great American art form.
Take a look at the history, sociology and impact of this vibrant culture that started on a block in the South Bronx, and made its way around the globe. Hip hop is – and always has been – an expression of youth culture, perseverance and innovation.
Seize this opportunity to get up with the Graffiti Writers, dig the sounds of the DJs, marvel at the MCs, and rock to the breaks with the B-Boys. Comprehending Hip Hop will provide an exciting lens through which you can see your world in engaging new ways.
Full disclosure: This course will deal with controversial subject matter and context-driven language that may not be suitable for all audiences.
