Collegiate 100® Workshop: Hip Hop and Activism: Bridging the Gap and Affecting Political Change

Emperor Ballroom II

Overview: Throughout history and long before the rise of modern technology, hip-hop has been a powerful platform for artists to raise awareness of the social and political injustices that plague the Black community. From Grandmaster Flash to Furious Five to Kendrick Lamar, hip-hop artists have spotlighted the systemic web of American racism, violence against Black people, social, economic, and political inequality, and the need for Black civic participation through their art. This workshop will discuss how young people can use their voices, platforms, and artistry to enact real change on campus, in the community, and in the world.
