Venue: University of Arizona Museum of Art
Start Time: 5:00pm

Dr. Alex Nava is Professor of Religious Studies at UArizona and author of book Street Scriptures, as well as a native Tucsonan and first-generation college graduate.

In this gallery talk, Dr. Nava considers the role that hip-hop played in his youth and how it helped shape his fascination with words, poetry and social justice. He will also look at how the genre evolved over its 50 years, focusing on the subgenre of Latinx hip-hop – including reggaeton and Latin trap – and how it has captured the struggles, adversities and triumphs of Latinos in the Americas.
