Hi CSOC folks!
In recognition of Arab American Heritage Month, I’ve been working with Multicultural Student Services (MCSS) to host a concert which will feature the Syrian American hip hop artist Omar Offendum. Offendum has worked to inform the American public about the Arab community and the Muslim experience in the U.S. He is one of the leading Arab American artists and strives to connect the Middle East and U.S. through music and poetry. Last year, he co-wrote a song called “#Jan25” which focused on the Egyptian revolution that ushered in the ‘Arab Spring’ (please check it out below). He has been featured by PBS, Al Jazeera, BBC, and other well-known broadcasters for this particular song. If you’re free this evening, drop by the rotunda and check out his show.
