Humanities Washington and the MCE feature Daudi Abe, “Emerald Street: Race, Class, Culture, and the History of Hip Hop in the Northwest”

THURSDAY | MARCH 1, 2018 | 5:30 – 7:30PM

 

From its beginnings in 1979, to Sir Mix-a-lot’s “Posse on Broadway,” to Macklemore, Northwest hip hop has been informed by local history as well as the diversity that defined the scene. Discover the history behind not only the Northwest’s Grammy-winning rappers, but its world champion break dance crew, its internationally read hip-hop magazine, the producers who collaborated with some of the biggest names in music, its world-renowned clothing designers, and the grassroots organizations dedicated to community service and education. Led by author and professor Daudi Abe, discover how Northwest hip hop is a living document of our region’s social and political movements, styles, energies, and ideologies, and how it embodies a unique sense of community.

Cost: Free and open to the public
