The multi-talented visionary, DJ, founder, and CEO of Black Girls Rock!, Beverly Bond collaborates with the Kennedy Center to present Rock Like a Girl, a signature Bond-Vision Media™ production that celebrates women’s contributions to the art and culture of hip-hop. The program includes performances by a diverse group of female artists from around the world, including legendary rap artist MC Lyte, critically acclaimed lyricist Jean Grae, Grammy Award–winning violinist Miri Ben-Ari, French Chilean MC Ana Tijoux, North Carolina MC Rapsody, a special appearance by the multi-talented Grammy Award–winning MC, singer, and song-writer Ms. Lauryn Hill, and other special guests! D.C.’s own all-girl go-go band, Be’la Dona, serves as the house band with DJ Beverly Bond on the ones-and-twos. Together, these women show what it means to “rock like a girl.” Please join us for a post-show discussion with artists, academics, and activists that encourages dialogue and analysis of the ways women of color are portrayed in the media. Please note: This concert contains explicit language. A limited number of free tickets will be distributed two (2) per person in line on Saturday, April 5, 2014, at the entrance to the Hall of Nations, beginning at 4:30 p.m. Part of One Mic: Hip-Hop Culture Worldwide.
