Hip-hop for social justice at UW

Rosa Clemente, hip hop activist, scholar, community organizer, journalist, and 2008 Green Party Vice Presidential Candidate, will give a presentation at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, April 1, in the Wyoming Union ballroom part of the fourth annual Hip Hop Comes Home Social Justice and Hip Hop Event.

A progressive voice for her generation, Clemente has dedicated her academic work to researching national liberation struggles inside the United States. She is co-founder of the R.E.A.C.Hip-Hop, a media justice coalition, and co-host of a weekly talk show, “Where We Live,” in New York City.

Local hip hop masters Collected Elements will perform, and three award-winning poets from the Laramie High School Social Justice Slam will also read their poetry.

This free event is part of the Shepard Symposium on Social Justice.
