Hip-Hop vs Neoliberalism
Friday, May 10, 2019 - 5:00pm • Cusick Conference Room, Windham Regional Career Center
Workshop with Rebel Diaz
Join artists and activists Rebel Diaz to learn how they use their music as an organizing tool and to spread knowledge about injustice. Rebel Diaz is a political hip hop duo out of the Bronx, New York and Chicago, Illinois consisting of the Chilean brothers Rodrigo Venegas (known as RodStarz) and Gonzalo Venegas (known as G1). The sons of political refugees from Chile who fled a CIA-funded dictatorship in the 1970s, they say, "Revolution raised us, and the culture of hip-hop provided us our own Nueva Cancion." Free and open to the public, this workshop is part of the Stand Up Fight Back! Education Conference sponsored by Marlboro College in collaboration with Educational Praxis, SPARK Teacher Training Institute, Brattleboro Solidarity, and Indigo Radio.
