Resistance is a centre point of hip hop.

Resistance is a centre point of hip hop. Hip hop’s art, music, fashion, history, language and community identity all run counter to a dominant colonial narrative—now it’s for modern-day hip hop griots to re-tell their story in an authentic way.

This event will feature an open format conversation with Indigenous Hip Hop artist, storyteller and speaker Drezus moderated by Assistance Professor Chandni Desai, Equity Studies Program at New College. In an age of resistance to global warming, clashes around land disputes and protests to injustices in the criminal system, Hip hop voices like Drezus’ need to be even more amplified. We invite students and community to listen, learn and ask questions.
