Pitt Johnstown Student Affairs: RAPTivism and Real Talk

Join fellow students at our five Pitt campuses for a great night of conversation regarding social justice on campus! 

Fukushima is a justice strategist, singer, speaker, and ‘RAPtivist’ (rap activist). She founded RAPtivism (Rap Activism), a hip hop project spanning 20 countries and four continents, amplifying universal efforts for freedom and justice.

In this performance-lecture Aisha Fukushima explores her personal story as an African American-Japanese woman, as well as her experiences traveling around the world as a cultural diplomat and edutainer (educator-entertainer). 

Topic/theme: This special experience will get audience members thinking about how systems of power and oppression intersect. It will also inspire students to think about their own role as agents of change in the world.

Student Panel featuring Pitt-Johnstown's own Jade Stubblefield and Arsh Baig! 

  • students experiences at Pitt and how they navigated the obstacles/challenges (i.e. what kind challenges students face, where they grew up ) 
  • the ways in which students would like to be supported
  • the types of improvements that students would like us to make 

Dial-In Information
