Organic Hip-Hop

People's Instinctive Travels & The Paths of Rhythm sounds more like the title of a doctoral dissertation than a hip-hop album by A Tribe Called Quest -- that is, if you don't know about hip-hop's origins in black intellectualism and grassroots activism. The second annual Organic Hip-Hop Conference Panel will continue this theme, hosting discussions about "The Roots of Hip-Hop Activism" with Davey D, Afrika "Baby" Bambata, and other lecturers. Between the talks you can catch what is being billed as "the best family hip-hop show of the year": African drumming, a b-boy/b-girl exhibition, an urban art exhibition, an open mike poetry session, and DJ Snowhite and DJ 2Nen on the ones and twos.
