Friday night at UC Berkeley, a hip-hop show called Breaking Beats and Borders attempted to bridge the hip hop community with activism surrounding Palestinian rights. The highlight of my evening was the performance by Invincible, or Ilana Weaver, a queer white Israeli-born woman who learned English by listening to hip-hop.
Based in Detroit, Invincible works with the Detroit Summers Live Arts Media project, to bring arts and awareness to urban educational curriculum. Check her out:
“I’m striving to be one of the best period/ Not just one of the best with breasts and a period.”
