Location: NCCU’s Shepard Library 2nd Floor
With support from TRLN’s IDEA funding, North Carolina Central University’s James E. Shepard Memorial Library is presenting “Celebrating 50 Years of Hip Hop” with several events throughout March and April 2023. For the second event, Shepard Library will host a poetry jam that features spoken word artists, poets, and rappers. This event will feature a DJ, NCCU’s Hip Hop Dance Crew, and will be hosted by student leaders. This event is designed to give students an outlet through which they can express their creativity, engage in a creative process with peers, and celebrate 50 years of Hip Hop with the larger campus community and the community at large.
