Event Details

In an art form known for its pride and excess, rapper Sho Baraka uses his platform to address injustice in his community, embracing an activism that flows from timeless streams of biblical thought.


Sho's music combines faith and social consciousness, highlighting the needs of today’s urban community. But how does he balance his callings as a performance artist and activist? How do his Christian convictions shape his craft?


Join Denver Institute for Faith & Work for “The Artist’s Voice: A Conversation about Faith, Rap & Race” a discussion exploring how faith shapes an artist’s craft and call to engage his community.

 

The evening will include a presentation by Sho Baraka and spoken-word performance by Denver-based poet Ayinde Russell.

 



“I wanna be an activist but I don’t wanna get shot

People think that I’m so brave — I’m so afraid

I get lost in my own head I’m so amazed

You can choose to be the book or either read about it

You can speak about it, be a prophet, or just a product.”

 

-Prophet, 1968 by Sho Baraka
