Beyond the Dream (University of San Francisco)
1 p.m. PT | 4 p.m. EST | RSVP Here
In this session, we will explore how activists of the past and conscientious rappers of today used their words to encourage action. Dr. King talked about his dream, Langston Hughes wrote about a dream deferred. What does that mean today? How do the lyrics of Chance the Rapper and Kendrick Lamar unite, encourage or motivate? Participants will consider how poetry and music can bring us together in conversations and help develop an action plan to address challenges in community.
Hosted by the University of San Francisco’s McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good
