Is there a connection between the criminalization of Black youth by mass media and law enforcement surrounding events in Ferguson, Missouri and similar events surrounding Black youth in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania? On October 3, 2014, 1Hood Media, will host a conversation that seeks to answer this question, as well as other questions surrounding the portrayal of Black youth, Hip Hop’s responsibility in this issue, and the militarization of local law enforcement as they mobilize against Black youth.
Join Jamie Erin Murphy and Shana Simmons for Discussion and Dance. Come see and talk about the new works-in-progress the two Pittsburgh based choreographers are sharing at Alloy Studios!
