Hip Hop & Social Justice
March 30, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
Please join the Parr Center for Ethics and the Institute for the Arts and Humanities for an evening panel on hip hop and social justice, featuring performances and discussion from three outstanding local artists.
Our panel will include Shirlette Ammons (poet, musician, author), Pierce Freelon (musician, educator, activist), and Josh Rowsey aka (J) Rowdy (poet, musician), with Perry Hall (UNC, African, African American, and Diaspora Studies) moderating. We will begin with an hour of performance featuring music and poetry from each artist. The panel will then have a moderated discussion about hip hop and activism, education, and social justice, with time for questions from the audience. After the event, we invite everyone to join us at the weekly Silent Sam Cypher.
