Hip Hop and Peace Event with Brother Ali and Omar Offendum (3/9/13)

Building on the success of last year’s “Ethics and Hip Hop” event with rapper, singer, and writer Dessa,  the Nobel Peace Prize Forum hosted a special event last night with Minnesota’s own Brother Ali at Syrian-American hip hop artist and activist Omar Offendum. Each artist delivered a TED-style presentation connecting their work to current events and issues of peace and conflict, which included the performance of several songs with a live band.  The crowd of nearly 900 people filled the Kennedy Center at Augsburg College and posed a number of provocative questions during the Q&A with 89.3 The Current’s Andrea Swensson.
