WA Stay Home Society

This is the first in a series of lectures about Black History in Washington. Join us for this insightful conversation from the comfort of your own home.

How does place impact culture? In Seattle’s case, it means going against the grain. While hip hop thrived in New York and Los Angeles, individuals like Sir-Mix-A-Lot found success by styling to the beat of their own drum in the Pacific Northwest. Join Dr. Daudi Abe for a discussion of his book Emerald Street: A History of Hip Hop in Seattle and learn more about the growth of hip hop in our region.
