Rap, Hip-Hop are Focus of Feb. 10 Omaha Table Talk Discussion
Omaha - Registration is now open for the second annual Omaha Table Talk Ethnic Potluck Dinner and Discussion at West Hills Church, 3015 South 82nd Ave. The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 10.
Omaha Table Talk is a program housed in the College of Public Affairs and Community Service at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO). It's designed to build social capital and improve race relations in the community with the help of UNO students, faculty and staff.
The event will provide information on the origins of Rap and Hip-Hop music, as well as a panel discussion. The event will feature a screening of popular Hip Hop music and a discussion of the implications and suitability of the music on groups and culture.
The event will include a feminist perspective questioning the music degradation of women, and offer a critique of its mentality toward popular culture.
Last year's event featured more than 75 participants who engaged in a spirited discussion. The audience had the opportunity to talk with others about the popular genre of Hip-Hop and Rap music in its various forms.
There is no cost to attend, but attendees are asked to bring an ethnic dish to share.
