Hip Hop As A Vehicle For Activism says
Rooted in African, Caribbean and Black American music traditions, Hip-Hop is a powerful tool for artists to bring voice to underrepresented communities and issues. Whether it’s bringing light to various injustices, celebrating cultural heritage or motivating people to make positive changes in their lives and communities, Seattle artists have long been at the forefront of this movement. Join Northwest Hip-Hop artists in a community conversation to discover how they leverage their art forms into progressive action.
