Ithaca College's Center for the Study of Culture, Race, and Ethnicity (CSCRE) invites you to join us at the final event of the 2012 Discussion Series on "Black Men", titled Creative Acts, Communal Celebrations. This Hip Hop/Spoken Word Show will feature local artists, bringing together the Ithaca and IC Community. Performers includes DJ Double A, Ave Mack of the Empire Kings, Nomadz of Nomadz Rekkids, Money Mars, Ernest Verb, Jay Scar, Kid N0va, Dubian, and other local musicians.
The event takes place on:
Thursday, April 26, 7:00p.m. at Community School of Music and Arts (CSMA), 330 East State St., Ithaca, N.Y.
The CSCRE Discussion Series has focused on the lives and voices of Black Men. Specifically, we have explored black men's complex relationships to self-determination and agency, state surveillance and violence, education, masculinity, socio-economic factors, and cultural representations. In enabling a critical engagement with these issues, the Series hopes to address the sensationalisms, successes, sexualities, responsibilities, celebrations, violences, and endangerments that form the framework for understanding the lives of Black Men.
This event is free and open to the public. Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodation should contact the CSCRE @ (607) 274-1056 or email@example.com
