Artivism: Celebrity + Art in Contemporary Movements – A conversation with MC/poet Mick Jenkins & Dr. Kevin L. Clay, Assistant Professor, Black Studies in Education
Join us for an expansive discussion centering on political education, hip-hop culture, rap music, activism, and political organizing. We will explore the complicated relationship between political education and pop culture with the intention of unpacking the unique opportunities and challenges that arise when celebrities and popular artists engage with contemporary social movements and, conversely, when our social movements embrace celebrity and other popular cultural forms.
This is the first in a series of public discussions led by Dr. Clay and Dr. Tamara L. Lee, assistant professor of Labor Studies and Employment Relations at Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations. Sign up here to be part of the conversation and stay in the know.
