Event Description

How can hip-hop music and spoken-word testimonies illuminate our understanding and practice of reconciliation? Young adults from the Twin Cities, alongside students from our campus, will answer this question through their hip-hop compositions and spoken-word testimonies. They will grapple with issues of injustice, revel in God’s love, share stories of courage and pain, celebrate the complexity of our humanity, invoke the teachings of Jesus, and in the midst of a hurting world, they will share how their experiences interface with their Christian faith. And you never know, we may add a pinch of holy silliness to the affair! Dr. Claudia May's class “Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and our Multicultural World” invites you to join them at this gathering of young adult voices.
