This multi-generational event combines all of the elements of hip hop into the first multimedia lecture produced to engage youth and adults. Break Bread and Build will include our honored guests along with cutting-edge scholars in the fields of hip hop, social justice and education.

The multi-media or "choreo-lecture" will include a keynote address and performance by the Original Last Poets as well as a lecture production that will incorporate media images, beak-dancing and graffiti art in a way that paints a vivid picture of how the social climate collided with the music of the times and created a culture of pride, resistance and social change. 


THIS IS A FUNDRAISING EVENT FOR AERI's innerSCOPE Youth Program
