Join us tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern for a live streaming panel discussion on YoungVoter from the University of Southern Indiana, Evansville.
Panelists include our own Biko Baker (executive director at the League), Jasiri X (hip-hop artist/ activist), Rosa Clemente (Green Party vice-presidential candidate) and Adam Mansbach (author of Angry Black White Boy). The panel will be moderated by respected political analyst, Bakari Kitwana.
The interactive event explores ways that the election of Barack Obama, the emergence of the Tea Party and the shifting national political landscape have both strengthened and diminished hip-hop’s effectiveness at mobilizing young people.
So tune in, tweet it out, and let your voice be HEARD!
