    [Description] This workshop gives a brief historical time line of black & brown liberation struggles and resistance through the origins and roots of hip hop. What has been the role of art / hip hop in social struggles? What is hip hop (defined as a culture) and what are the elements that make hip hop? Through various creative exercises, music presentations and discussion we will reignite the imagination with art / hip hop to bring forth solutions and tactics for social change. featuring performances by spiritchild along with Miky, Prince Akeem and Phyre of Art Start. 2pm in the Center for Gender, Sexuality, and Activism (basement of the GSU) About spiritchild: spiritchild, as he is known, is a freedom singer from the south Bronx by way of Brooklyn, who uses the arts to cultivate a cultural revolution.
