Hip-Hop Herstory: Celebrating Bay Area Women
DOORS OPEN AT 7PM. SHOW STARTS AT 7:30PM.
MCs, DJs, promoters — women have helped build hip-hop culture since its foundation. Yet in a male-dominated music industry, many of their stories aren’t told. It’s time to correct the record with a night of music and conversation. We’ll go behind the scenes of 1988’s “The Real Freaky Tales, The Girls Story” with Kimmie Fresh, and unpack pimp culture with RyanNicole, co-host of the vodcast ‘What’s Pimpin’?’ After the panels, Tia Nomore, Stoni and Alien Mac Kitty, three rising stars of Bay Area rap, will grace the stage with live performances. Nastia Voynovskaya, co-editor of KQED’s That’s My Word, will host.
