SHHO panel examines how hip-hop is more than a genre

UNC’s Student Hip-Hop Organization, SHHO, held a panel discussion Monday expressing the art, platform and history of hip-hop and its impacts on social change and social justice.  “Hip-hop is a very large platform for artists, young and old, to share their voices and empower people who may be underrepresented in their communities,” said Nicho Stevens, SHHO executive member.

But instead of worrying about Grayson Allen’s 3-pointers and your intimidatingly large paper due next week, come dance around the quad, meet new friends and play the kazoo.
