An Online Workshop Series on Hip-Hop, Lyricism, and Black Oral Tradition with EJ Walls aka Sin Q

Participants in this workshop series will be invited to develop and exercise skills in writing and performing rap and other melodic forms of lyricism, as well as learn about the history of great orators, writers, speakers, and performers that have pioneered what we know as “rap” or “hip-hop” music today. These workshops will serve as a space not only to strengthen and refine these skills but also to study and honor the contributions of various “emcees” past and present that we draw inspiration from. The Fall segment of the workshop series will culminate in a themed Under 21 Open Mic, while the Spring segment will culminate in a featured group performance at the 2022 MC Olympics during the Unified Poetry Festival in April. Though the workshop series will be designed and targeted toward aspiring artists and writers, any 13-19-year-olds who consider themselves a fan or consumer of rap or other Black musical traditions is welcome.

Fall: Thursdays 4:30-6:30 pm PT
Spring: Thursdays February 3rd – March 24th 2022
