In the first of four installments of the Four Ways podcast commentaries, we’ll meet Mark Evans who is among the Madisonians who has a deep commitment to hip-hop culture. Better known as ShaH… he has been a part of a movement to bounce back from unfair bans on live hip-hop shows and has worked hard to turn discrimination into progress.
In this episode, ShaH dives into why people came together to form the Urban Community Arts Network and why their mission has been the key to keeping their focus on community building. UCAN has pulled hip-hop fans together, engaged them, and flipped the public discussion from criticism of a musical genre… to accolades and positive education.
Even if you aren’t a fan of hip-hop – or maybe ESPECIALLY if you don’t like hip-hop – listen to their manifesto. This is a story of just one way ShaH Evans and the Urban Community Arts Network are making a difference.
