Event description

Description

Omar Offendum is a Los Angeles-based Syrian-American hip-hop artist, activist and architect. His music and poetry, which he performs in both Arabic and English, are infused with historical, geographical and religious references and intermixed with personal accounts of faith, politics, and growing up in Washington, D.C.

Omar Offendum’s focus on Syria and uprisings in the Middle East expose American audiences to a little-understood region. His poetry and music build on American Hip-Hop and compel diverse audiences to consider issues of identity, belonging, and diaspora.

Offendum will perform a concert at the Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History theater on February 24, 2018 with special guests Pierce Freelon, Naji Hilal (oud) & Mahmoud Alqhumri (tabla) and UNC Cypher.

This concert is FREE but tickets are required. Click the register link to obtain your ticket.
