As the Urban Tech Fair (UTF) missions to be a model demonstration of leveraging technology, our existing resources, and collaboration, UTF launches it monthly virtual series with a global discussion on the birth of, women in, and conscious Hip Hop. This solution oriented discussion uses the extremely user friendly and interactive Spreecast platform to bring Hip Hop pioneers, emerging artists, and the general public together to address the question, “How do we reclaim and take control of our original cultural expression and use it to break down generational barriers, instill a positive value system, teach, engage strategic entrepreneurship, and just have some fun?”
The Other Side of Hip Hop: Back To Birth will feature from Los Angeles, Silky D, one of the first African American female DJs, Award winning Film and Television Producer, Lathan Hodges, actor/director/producer Zuhairah McGill along with emerging artists Akua Naru of Germany, Farrah Burns and NeNe Ali of NYC, Intelligenz of Las Vegas, and S.O.U.L. representing Jacksonville, Florida. Also, the work of Hip Hop pioneers and historians Afrika Bambaata, Chuck D, and KRS One along with emerging artists Seff Al-Afriqi and Hezekiah.
The Other Side of Hip Hop will provide the community with a common knowledge and value base through Hip Hop’s history and founding principles of peace, love, unity and safely having fun. Then, emerging artists will be interviewed and their works showcased to demonstrate that Hip Hop in its original intent does still exist. Last, there will be a call for and brainstorm of solutions as to how do we provide access to this Hip Hop to the 94% of people within our communities who get their art and news from mainstream media. Once we provide access, how do we distribute and incorporate the values of Hip Hop to develop individual minds, families, and communities. The framing question to be posed is, “how do we leverage the creative culture of Hip Hop and technology to build effective thinking frames?”
