There’s going to be another reason to look forward to the weekend: Native Detroiter Aisha Ellis, featured “We Found Hip Hop” artist will be premiering in a virtual concert on Sunday and it’s going to be more than lit.
“We Found Hip Hop” is an organization empowering women through Hip Hop and its founder Piper Carter — activist and photographer for French Vogue, Tyra Banks, British Elle, and New York Times — is holding the midnight virtual event on Sunday, July 11.
Ellis, a Black female drummer, will perform live in the premiere concert on “We Found Hip Hop’s” Youtube page, which is available via free registration here.
“Detroit, Michigan, has long been recognized as a center of musical innovation and social change.” Rebekah Farrugia and Kellie D. Hay said in a press release.
The importance of unifying diverse women is what We Found HipHop is all about. Mobilization of a grassroots response to political and social pressures. The organization plays a pivotal role in Detroit’s culture by giving artists a platform to express themselves and support women in Hip Hop to help them build careers in a safer environment.
“Women Rapping Revolution: Hip Hop and Community Building in Detroit” is a book based on the chronicles of the cultural movement We Found Hip Hop written by Rebekah Farrugia and Kellie D. Hay and published by the University of California Press. A research project to raise awareness of this community and their experiences creating this movement in Detroit.
