Chicago based hip-hop artist, Rhymefest, will be speaking at Rackham on Wednesday September 8th. From the Facebook Event Page:
“Bars Against Bars: Hip Hop For Change” will address the relationship between Hip Hop culture and the prison industrial complex. Hip Hop often takes the blame for many societal ills, but Hip Hop is not the problem. It is a symptom of much larger injustices. Rhymefest will call attention to these issues and highlight ways to affect change.Should be pretty cool.
