Join this discussion of the evolution and partnership of poetry and hip hop in the United States, which will also include a writer of poems and an MC discussing their writing process, and how history informs their work.

With poets and rappers, one of the biggest similarities is their desire to convey a message. The content may differ, but the need to evoke an emotional response is the same. It's typically driven by their view of the world or society and wanting to state their point of view.

This dynamic event will be co-facilitated by Dr. Katherine Jewell (Economics, History and Political Science) and Dr. DeMisty Bellinger-Delfeld (English Studies).
