Harlem Renaissance meets Damascus in Omar Offendum’s provocative blend of hip-hop and Arabic poetry.

Personal narrative blends with poignant reflections on humanity in Syrian-American poet and rapper Omar Offendum’s beat-driven performance. Spanning the stylings of Syrian poet Kahlil Gibran to Harlem Renaissance great Langston Hughes, Offendum creates a one-of-a-kind world of rich and varied influences. With an artistic journey paralleling Syria’s shifting sociopolitical sands and the rise of social media, Offendum paves a compelling poetic pathway across cultural divides in this can't-miss performance-lecture.
