A Virtual Kick off Celebration for "Food for the People" Exhibition
What do we want? Food Justice! When do we want it? Now! This recorded program entertains and enlightens with a rhythm-filled hour of music, dialogue, and food. Hang out with the Christylez Bacon, Grammy-nominated Hip Hop artist, and our Senior Curator, Dr. Samir Meghelli, as we unveil the outdoor components of ACM’s new exhibition “Food for the People: Eating and Activism in Greater Washington.” Christylez Bacon, who is known for his improvisational style and beat-box rhythms, proudly hails from Southeast Washington. He’ll mix his homegrown beats with an eye-opening curator-led tour through the museum grounds. Keep a look out for a couple of special guests! Christylez Bacon (Pronounced “Chris Styles”) is a Grammy nominated progressive Hip Hop artist and multi-instrumentalist from South East, Washington, DC. As a performer, Christylez multi-tasks between various instruments such as the West African Djembe drum, acoustic guitar, and the human beat-box (oral percussion), all while continuing the oral tradition of storytelling through lyrics. Host: Sage-Morgan Hubbard Special Guests: Xavier Brown, Beverley Wheeler, Rebecca Lemos-Otero Sponsored by Events DC, with additional support from The Hillside Foundation – Allen and Shelly Holt. Additional support from AARP DC Food for the People exhibition received federal support from the Latino Initiatives Pool, administered by the Smithsonian Latino Center
