On Wednesday, November 18th at 7 pm, wrapping up the celebration is a conversation with Dr. Daudi Abe and Jazmyn Scott, to discuss his brand new book, Emerald Street: A History of Hip Hop in Seattle. Registration required: tiny.cc/daudiabe

Dr. Daudi Abe is Professor of Humanities at Seattle Central College and author of “6 ‘N the Morning: West Coast Hip-Hop Music 1987-1992” and “The Transformation of Mainstream Culture.”

In ‘Emerald Street’, Daudi Abe chronicles the development of Seattle hip-hop from its earliest days, drawing on interviews with artists and journalists to trace how the elements of hip hop–rapping, DJing, breaking, and graffiti–flourished in the Seattle scene. He shows how Seattle hip-hop culture goes beyond art and music, influencing politics, the relationships between communities of color and law enforcement, the changing media scene, and youth outreach and educational programs. The result is a rich narrative of a dynamic and influential force in Seattle music history and beyond.
