Longmore Institute's Krip-Hop Event Brings Disability Center Stage

Thursday, March 04, 2021

GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- “The thing that I see in hip-hop [is] that mental health is talked about a lot,” Moore Jr. said, ”but we don’t move further into disability, we don’t move into physically disabled artists, artists that have autism, artists that are blind, so that push needs to happen.”

The event was hosted and coordinated by Emily Beitiks, associate director at Longmore Institute on Disability at SF State. She wanted to ensure that students with disabilities could be introduced to creative outlets like krip-hop. “This might be a place that you find your home, that you find your voice.”
