Hip-Hop was born out of the brilliance of a community of Black youth in the South Bronx. Today, it continues to have relevance that goes beyond being just a genre of music; it is a lifestyle, a form of resistance and way of building community.

Join the Regent Park Film Festival for a special screening of Hip Hop Evolution where we follow Canadian rapper Shad, as he travels through the South Bronx and Harlem to retrace the roots of hip hop with icons DJ Kool Herc, Africa Bambaataa, Grandmaster Flash and Ice Cube.

The evening will be hosted by CBC Radio 2’s Amanda Parris, who will lead a conversation with Canada’s first female MC Michie Mee, Anishinaabe rapper and bboy Que Rock, award winning journalist and scholar Dalton Higgins, youth hip hop artist and organizer LolaBunz,  and artist and community organizer Wan Luv.

We’ll be delving into the history of Hip Hop, with a present-day look into the importance of its poetry and the impact it has on life and culture in Toronto and worldwide.
