Gems of Wisdom: The History of Hip Hop Interactive Workshop and Q&A with Wordsmith (Baltimore) and Nelson Brandt, a.k.a. Nepumuk (Offenbach)

An Event Hosted by the US Consulate Frankfurt

Wordsmith History Hip Hop Feb 7 1024x530

In celebration of Black History Month, the U.S. Embassy and Consulates in Germany invite you to join Baltimore-based musician Wordsmith and his band as they take you on an interactive journey through Hip Hop. Discover Hip Hop’s various styles, musical and technological influences, performative elements and how artists have used Hip Hop’s forms of expression to stand up for social justice and fight against discrimination. The first wave of English-language Hip Hop came to Germany from the United States at the beginning of the 1980s. Hip Hop parties and competitions sprang up, drawing rappers, sprayers and break-dancers from across the country. Backed by a generation of young fans, a number of artists around the world continue to use Hip Hop’s popularity as a way to piece together societal fractures, building bridges between different cultures in the face of division. Wordsmith is joined by Offenbach-based artist Nelson Brandt, a.k.a. Nepumuk. This workshop is a mixture of lecture, performance and interactive teaching.

You must register in advance HERE with the US Consulate Frankfurt to join the Zoom Webinar. (In English)
