    ST.LOUIS (August 25, 2011). Nia’fidahli is pleased to present, I AM HIP HOP: Redefining the Images of Women in Hip Hop on September 15, 2011 at The Missouri History Museum located at 5700 Lindell (from 6pm-9pm, free admission and open to the public). Nia’fidahli will team with Tavis Smiley’s, America I Am Exhibition, to present an interactive, art-driven event that will bring together a plethora of St. Louis musicians, scholars, activists, poets and visual artists in an effort to highlight the positive contributions of women in hip hop, as well as engage in a healthy dialogue about ways to redefine how women are perceived within the context of hip hop culture. Women have been an integral part of hip hop since its formative years; but, as the progression of hip hop has taken its course, the objectification and dehumanization of women have become more and more prevalent and the presence of women in the mainstream industry has continued to decline. Between glamourizing video vixens and female rap artists overly saturating tracks with sex-centered lyrics, women have been consistently defined as one-dimensional sex objects. This is not an image that society should be accustomed to, therefore, the primary purpose of I AM HIP HOP, is to visually capture the essence of women and their progressive influence on hip hop culture. By presenting positive versions of women in hip hop, it is our hope that we can begin reshaping not only how we view women in today’s society, but also how we treat them. The late rapper Tupac Shakur sums it up best in his song, “Keep Ya Head Up,” where he asserts: “I think it’s time to heal our women, be real to our women; and if we don't, we'll have a race of babies, that will hate the ladies, that make the babies…” This event will utilize various mediums such as: dance, film, turntablism, visual art and a panel discussion; so please come out and support our efforts in reshaping the imagery of women in hip hop.
