Can Hip-Hop cultures be reclaimed to offer Black Feminist Perspectives? Beyond Beyoncé: use it like a bumper! is a public conversation using Hip-Hop as a keystone to question what possibilities are offered to Black female bodies in both mainstream and alternative cultures.


Guest speakers Jamila Johnson-Small (dance artist), Chardine Taylor-Stone (activist, writer and DJ), Paul Maheke (visual artist) and Lola Okolosie (writer and teacher) will discuss ways in which Black females today - beyond the iconic queens Beyoncé, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj - use Hip-Hop as a way to reclaim power and to foster new subjectivities. An exquisite free buffet catered by Claire Antoine will accompany an electric performance by Tropical Isles Carnival Dance Troupe, not to be missed so arrive early!
