The Mike Brown Rebellion: A Conversation w/ Hip Hop Artists Rebel Diaz

November 10 @ 1:20 pm - 2:35 pm

As a part of our survey course Critical Global Studies 67: Resistance to Monoculture, this week the Hip Hop artists join us in dialogue about grassroots politics and uprising. They will be sharing their experience in Ferguson during the anti-police popular uprising in response to the killing of Mike Brown, one of the catalysts for the #BlackLivesMatter movement. They will be sharing clips of their documentary, The Mike Brown Rebellion.

From their website:

We are?Rebel Diaz. Somos hermanos- RodStarz and G1- who grew up in Chicago and came up in The South Bronx. Somos hijos de political refugees from Chile who fled a CIA-funded dictatorship in the 1970s. Revolution raised us, and the culture of Hip-Hop provided us our own Nueva Cancion. We’ve been doing rebel rap since the Clinton era, sharing our story and those of our people; el barrio, the hood, the poor, los inmigrantes. Our bilingual sound has been shaped by pieces of South American folk, house, and Latin percussion gettin’ down with boom-bap breaks and 808s.
