Hip-Hop Workshop: Making Music as a Pathway to Diversity, Inclusion, and Allyship

Use the power of Hip-Hop to challenge antiquated paradigms.

Event Postponed
Due to unforeseen circumstances, this program has been postponed. We apologize for any inconvenience. 


Create your own Hip-Hop track in this workshop presented by Hip Hop For Change. Emcee and producer Marlon Richardson will introduce you to various elements of the genre — DJing/beatmaking, songwriting, breakdancing, and graffiti art — and then you’ll break out into groups to collaborate on projects that reflect and value all ethnic and cultural influences and contributions. You’ll come away with an understanding of how Hip-Hop Culture, music, and creativity can be powerful vehicles for multiculturalism, understanding, equity, and challenging antiquated paradigms.


Marlon Richardson is the education director of Hip Hop For Change, Inc. (HH4C), a nonprofit organization that uses grassroots activism to educate people about socioeconomic injustices and advocate solutions through Hip-Hop Culture. HH4C raises funds for local causes that enrich marginalized and historically oppressed communities.
