Music and slam poetry

Julia Perkins

The Department of Sociology and the Office of Multicultural and Global Education will sponsor a Hip-Hop Symposium and Poetry Slam on Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Mancheski Executive Seminar Room. Students will present their poems and music at the event. The event also includes guest speaker Matt Birkhold, the co-founder of Growing Roots. The Hip-Hop Symposium and Poetry Slam was created with Professor Don Sawyer’s Sociology of Hip-Hop course and QUOTE, the student spoken-word poetry organization.
