The CoHo at Stanford University was full of students on April 29, 2011 who came to watch the "Brooklyn Beats to Beirut Streets" Artist Workshop featuring Omar Offendum, Nizar Wattad, Mark Gonzales (The Human Writes Project).
The performance, which featured all three speakers reflecting and rapping about their lives, their identity quest(s), politics, East-West relations, and much more, was applauded by the audience who later engaged the 3 artists in an extensive Q & A session.
The event was organized as part of the "Global Flows--Globalization of Hip hop Art, Culture, and Politics" series of events/course offered at Stanford by Professor H. Samy Alim.
Below are some exclusive pictures and FOUR short video clips from the event.
