A HIP-HOP ODYSSEY THROUGH RACE AND IDENTITY

 

Poetry, rap, and storytelling join forces in a tale of race, whiteness, language, and Hip Hop as a global community. Writer-performer and UNC graduate Kane Smego draws on his experience as an international touring poet, Hip Hop artist, youth educator, and native of the American South in this virtuosic one-man show.
