Don't Wait Til It's Cool: A North Carolina Hip Hop Photo Exhibition
Fifteen photographers featured in a travel exhibition - "Don't Wait Til It's Cool", explores the relationship between North Carolina's hip-hop culture, music venues, and the various photographers that capture those artists on stage and beyond. This exhibition features photographic works from artists that have supported North Carolina’s Hip Hop Community through their lenses. We hope to invoke discussion about the role of photography in a music artist's development, arts placemaking, and hip-hop's representation in the public arts sector.
JCSU SNEAKER LECTURE | REEBOK SNEAKER GIVE-A-WAY
Since 2014 I have had the the pleasure of being a guest lecturer at Johnson C. Smith University. JCSU is home to the world's first for credit english course dedicated to identification within sneaker culture. In my guest lecture we talk about life skills, the in's and out's of the sneaker industry, and encourage student to create opportunities through their passions. This year I was blessed enough to partner with Social Status and give-a-way their recent collab with Reebok to all students in attendance.
