Feminine Renditions in Rare Form

Badu briefly responds to my query.
A woman can bear you, break you, take you. Now it's time to rhyme.
Seriously. Maintenant.
Freestyle Union Cipher Workshop for Female MC's & Hip-Hop Poets w/ Toni Blackman

**TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 20th 6:30-8:30**
New School University Campus/The Lang Student Center is located at 55 West 13th Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues on the north side of the street. Multipurpose Room, Ground Floor.

Toni Blackman's participant-centered vibe-session creates a space for every MC, every style, and every voice. Build your skills, vibe with other female hip-hop heads and let your voice be a part of the movement to elevate hip-hop music and culture. Historically, there's been only one female per crew, but we in the cipher believe that our collective power is what is needed to make a real difference in the numbers.

Ladies, don't sit by the wayside complaining about the lack of females in the game get in the game and get open....

Great musicians practice and go to jam sessions. Great athletes train. Tight MC's have to put in the work to become tight MC's...

Female voices will be heard, but fellas are welcome to watch the women work. Guys, come out and support! You don't need to be an MC to come.

No RSVP needed to attend. All ages--14 to 44. For more info, please call the Institute for Urban Education at 212-229-5100 x2266 or visit our website at or EMAIL:
