(Seaport) Intro to Rap & Reggaeton: Are We Consuming the Music? Or, Is the Music Consuming Us? with Leidy Quiceno
Do you love Rap & Reggaeton, but find yourself grappling with its content at times? In this restorative justice workshop, we'll embark on a journey through music history to ensure we are being informed consumers (& creators!) of these art forms.
