the hidden wall: hip hop as social change for young people

July 16th, 2007     by Thea Lim     Comments

This Toronto event sounds great: it’s a photo exhibit documenting a high school program that uses hip hop to engage young people in gender, race, self-identity and community issues. In the words of one of the program facilators: hip hop has been dismembered by mainstream media to make it profitable, but that hip hop is not the hip hop that is a community force. The Hidden Wall reflects the way that hip hop has influenced the lives of the students at Dr. Marion Hillard High School in Malvern.

And…it’s also a family event, so you can bring your baby and your gramma.
