Hip hop offered as
at Manchester College
on Saturday, Oct. 11
NORTH MANCHESTER, Ind. - The nation's oldest
anti-war organization and a New York City artist collective will use hip
hop Saturday, Oct. 11 to teach Manchester College's peace activists how
to use music as a form of nonviolent resistance.
Movement in Motion organizes pro-peace, open mic,
hip hop street protests so people walking in Manhattan who normally
would avoid political debate are tempted to bop their heads to a
progressive beat. The collective has created five volumes of original
hip hop. Their "Drop Beats Not Bombs: Power of Nonviolence Tour" is a
collaboration with the Fellowship of Reconciliation's Peacemaker
Movement in Motion will conduct a workshop "Art As
Activism: Raise Your Voice" at 3 p.m. Saturday at the Peace House on the
Manchester College campus, at the corner of Wayne Street and College
Avenue. Movement in Motion will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday in the great
room of Helman Hall on campus. The public is invited.
Since 1915, the interfaith Fellowship of
Reconciliation in the United States has offered programs and projects
about domestic and international peace and justice and nonviolent
alternatives to conflict.
