Celebrated hip-hop performance artist Marc Bamuthi Joseph joins us as part of our “First Person” series, profiling the leaders, innovators and other compelling characters who make the Bay Area unique. A national poetry slam champion, Joseph is artistic director of San Francisco-based Youth Speaks.
His current production “red, black & GREEN: a blues,” blends poetry, dance, music and film in an exploration of race and environmentalism. It runs at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts through October 22.
