Today @ Apple Workshop on Hip Hop Lyricism in Washington, DC

Howard University professor Msia Kibona Clark, Ph.D., from the Department of African Studies, will host a “Today at Apple Workshop” on June 12, 2019, from 5:30-7 p.m. at the new Apple Store in the Carnegie Library, 801 K Street NW, Washington, DC.

Pen your own rap verse and celebrate the power of storytelling with African hip-hop scholar Dr. Clark. She’ll share her passion for creating social change by empowering others through representation. You’ll explore identity and write hip-hop lyrics on an iPad, and enjoy a performance by Dr. Clark’s students. During week four, join more sessions in music as part of our six-week StoryMakers Festival.

The workshop is part of Apple’s StoryMakers Festival, a six-week event focusing on D.C. artists and how they tell their stories through photo, video, music and art. The workshop will include DC-based MC, Ya Minko (IG: @minkoemmanuel) from Gabon, as well as two of our own Howard University students, Toyosi Falegan (IG: @haytch_veen) and Awele Utomi (IG: @aweski) from Nigeria.

The workshop is free, but registration is required at: Today at Apple workshop.
