"Socially Conscientious: The Vibe of Today's Youth," young artists Cassandra C'olon, artist promoter; "Chizz," poet; DeAldon Watson, writer and disc jockey; and Hanna Drake, poet and author, will discuss how they have chosen to follow those who use art to uplift others and build the community in positive ways. In a tribute, they will highlight how their approach to verse and music retains the philosophy of artists such as The Last Poets, a poets and musicians group, and Gil Scott-Heron, a poet and performer whose musical mix of jazz, blues and soul influenced later styles including hip-hop.
