MECAWI to Host "Rap Against the War" Cultural Event on Saturday, July 28
The Detroit-based peace and social justice organization, widely-known for its work in mobilizing broad-based support to end war and occupation, the Michigan Emergency Committee Against War & Injustice (MECAWI), is inviting the public to a "Rap Against the War" cultural event on July 28 from 7:00 p.m.-11:00 p.m. at 5922 Second Avenue, just north of the Wayne State University campus.
This program will feature artists such as "Big A" and Zhaoski (Hip Hop artist from South Lebanon to Detroit); The U.S. (Hip Hop artists/Detroit/Iraq mix); Josef Petrous (Hip Hop solo); Markeeta Moore (Solo songstress); and other poets, spoken-word and Hip-Hop artists.
"Rap Against the War" is designed to raise the awareness of the community by challenging the conditions and mobilizing a united front through local Hip Hop, solo artists, dance and poetry.
A donation of $5 is requested to encourage and advance the anti-war and social justice cause.
