Event Description

Join USC’s Brain and Creativity Institute for a uniquely fascinating multimedia event featuring Milwaukee-based visual and spoken word artists Fondé Bridges, Mikal Floyd-Pruitt, and Dasha Kelly.

Drawing from hip hop and the Black experience, they will bring their linguistic, cultural, and collaborative talents to the university, where they will work with audience members to identify familiar-but-unnamed racial experiences and generate new language to describe them. Building on experiences working with USC students in classes taught by Taj Frazier (Communication), Lanita Jacobs (American Studies and Ethnicity), and LaVonna Lewis (Public Policy), the artists and attendees will brainstorm, sprout, and spread new vocabulary for a new era.

How to Register?

Admission is free. Reservations required.
