A Mic & Dim Lights in alliance with The Human Writes Project presents:
Afro-Latinoguistics: Where Black is Brown, which brings together HBO Def Poets and Hip Hop Theatre artists of African, Latino, and Korean descent to poetically address and extinguish inter-ethnic violence by reshaping communal attitudes towards the other. The purpose of this presentation is to use spoken word, Hip Hop Theatre and performance to unearth communal emotions regarding race and gender, the historical roots of such emotions, and the development of solutions as well as address the lack of equality and social justice that plagues various cultures.
BESSKEPP, MARK GONZALES, GABRIELLA GARCIA MEDINA, JADE ROSS, AND SARAH KIM (SKIM) will be performing a series of pieces that articulate the reality of growing up in Modern America. A Q&A facilitated by the performers will follow the performance.
