Hip Hop Music: Culture & Legacy

February 24 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Wes Jackson, educator, producer and entrepreneur, takes the audience on a journey through Hip-Hop, starting with the socio-economic conditions that laid the groundwork for Hip-Hop Culture in the 1970s. We discuss the 4 Elements (DJ, MC, B-Boy/B-Girl, Graffiti). And finally, connect the dots between Kanye West and Run-DMC. The more knowledgeable will leave with some thoughts to chew on. Novices will leave with a deeper appreciation for the billion-dollar industry that influences sports, politics, film, TV as well as music.

Livestream tickets are $20, $10 for students
