To celebrate National Hip-Hop History Month in November and the 50th anniversary of this world-changing cultural and artistic movement, we are offering the Hip-Hop Experience Workshop, facilitated by artist and singer Jazzmyn RED.

This workshop session will focus on the roots of hip-hop, reflecting on early storytellers and how their influence on the genre evolved into elements of hip-hop culture we see today. We will discuss storytelling, sampling, and the socioeconomic conditions of the birthplace of hip-hop.

Jazzmyn RED is a passionate artist from Massachusetts who blends her lyricism, soulful singing, and songwriting to create a unique and powerful sound. Jazzmyn has an affinity for bold storytelling about history, social justice and social issues, relationships, and society as a whole. In addition to leading these workshops and performing, she currently serves as an Ambassador of Hip Hop and Cultural Exchange to the U.S. State Department’s Next Level Program.

Led by:
Jazzmyn RED, MC, singer, poet, educator, and hip-hop activist
