A Night of Ferocious Joy

A Night of Ferocious Joy

The West Coast Hip-Hop Underground takes on George W. Bush.

Mother’s Day, May 12, 2002. Bombs were raining down on Afghanistan and the future plans for Iraq were still a deep secret.

To a sold out crowd at the legendary Palace theater in Hollywood, California, a disparate group of Hip-Hop, Latin Funk, Spoken Word and Visual Artists – rising stars and unknowns – created and produced what would become the first antiwar concert of the new millennium, ArtSpeaks! Not In Our Name.

It was a night of ferocious joy.
