Let the Woman Speak: Sexism, Misogyny, and Hip Hop
5:30pm to 7:30pm
The Common Table
2001 Riverside Ave, Minneapolis
(free, open to the public, family friendly, all ages, and accessible)


In the words of Raquel Cepeda, Hip Hop is “storytelling” that allows us to “roam this breathtaking planet.” It is “this thing we love that loves us back.”

Underdlying the beauty and love of Hip Hop, however, are questions of sexism and misogyny that arise in communities as numerous as their are Hip Hip expressions. Women love Hip Hop as much as men, but they don’t always feel Hip Hop loves them back. This event will address those issues at the local Twin Cities level.

Please join us for a panel discussion on sexism and misogyny in Hip Hop culture and communities. Here is the line up of panelists (in first name alphabetical order):

-Alphonso Fleming (aka Extreme; aka Dispute One)
-Lesley Anne
-Maia Maiden
-Omaur Bliss
-Robert French
-Sol Rebel Phoenix Ras
