|Title:||Catalina Maria Johnson, Ph.D: Latin Hip Hop as a New Poetry|
RVDLwelcomes IL Humanities Road Scholar, journalist, and Beat Latino radio show host and producer, Catalina Maria Johnson, Ph.D., for this musical, informative, and interactive program!
“Latin hip hop artists are advancing the poetic traditions of their countries in unique ways. Nevertheless, academia and poetic circles have surprisingly not embraced and celebrated these artists as poets. This program, with video and lyric examples will make a case for hip hop as the new poetry with a focus on Latinos in the U.S., the Americas. The presentation, paired with slides and a rich set of musical videos, is lively, light and fun, and focused on participation, discussion, and musical enjoyment!”
