Fly Ladies Reppin the 4 Elements of Hip Hop
Sat May 14, 2011 @ La Pena, Berkeley

Since its inception, Hip-Hop has spotlighted voices and movements of resistance. However, at times it has been used as a patriarchal tool for oppression. QUEENDOM seeks to reverse that by placing women at the center of this art form. Witness this all-female show as the ladies of hip-hop represent all 4 elements – graf writing, breakin’, MCing & DJing – as they always have.
