WORD UP: WRITING HIP HOP
Wednesday, October 28, 2015
14:00 to 15:30
<p>Hip hop music is not only popular in our contemporary culture, but also an important form of expression for marginalized communities. Its roots are undoubtedly African American, and it continues to play a major role in shaping Black communities around the world; artists of colour from other backgrounds, however, have also adopted hip hop as a powerful means of giving them voice to draw attention to the realities of their own communities. This panel features hip hop artists Peggy Hogan (a.k.a. Hua Li), Marshia Maxwell (a.k.a. Marshia Celina), and Nicolas Palacios-Hardy (a.k.a. Butta Beats), who will ruminate on their respective creative processes while giving attendees a little taste of their oeuvres.</p>
<p>The English Symposium Committee would like to thank The Faculty of Science and General Studies for sponsoring this event, and Vanier&rsquo;s Print Shop, Bookstore, Student Services, and Communications Department for assisting with various aspects of it.</p>
