Celebrate the grand opening of the new skate park in Cloquet MN with Teaching Artist DJ Kool Akeim! He will be teaching the History in Hip-Hop at the Cloquet Public Library.
Everyone has heard of “Rap” or “Hip-Hop” but not everyone understands the origins and roots of one of the most prolific and pervasive popular youth cultures today. Participants will examine the emergence of:
The Four Elements;
important creators and innovators;
politics and ethics;
entrepreneurship vs. commercialization;
the divergence of styles;
and the flowering worldwide movement in the context of changing technology and new social media.
