Seeds of Resistance and Resilience: Lessons from the Dandelion – evolving and cross-pollinating social justice movements and hip-hop
1241 Good Hope Road, SE, Washington, DC
This workshop moderated by Sage Crump of Art is Change highlights several models of activism and community organizing that integrate hip-hop into their social justice work. Presenters from a variety of artistic, activist, and organizing backgrounds creatively share their work--Jess Solomon (DC), Michael Premo (NYC), Sacramento Knoxx and Christy Bieber (Detroit), Mark-Anthony Johnson (LA), and Invincible (Detroit)--followed by critical reflection on the lessons, opportunities, challenges, and contradictions of these intersections. Workshop participants will have space to apply these frameworks to their own communities and projects.
