GRAMMY Museum and Rock and Roll Forever Foundation Present: Celebrating Community with Poetry

Share

There are many different types of communities helping people find a safe place to fit in with others who share their experiences. Today we introduce students to artists such as poet Kevil Coval, Chance the Rapper, Jamila Woods, Nico Segal, and musical group, The Social Experiment, all who developed their own unique style through Chicago’s art communities. With careful ears and watchful eyes, we comb through rhyme and prose to sift out the artists’ community influences throughout their works and reflect on how our own communities influence ours.
