Supaman, a Native American rapper who combines hip hop, traditional dances, and spoken word into his performances, performed on campus as an activist in residence through the Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI).
Supaman's April 5 performance included several of his pieces from his most recent album, Illuminatives. Dressed in traditional Native American attire, he captivated audiences with his poignant songs about current social issues in our country and within the culture of many Native American tribes.
"We try to find activists who explore social justice through the arts," said Dena Salerno, assistant dean for diversity and inclusion. "Supaman was referred to the CDI through Dr. Maria Munoz, who had really enjoyed his performance. The office felt that his combination of storytelling, hip hop and spoken word would be a great addition to our already stellar collection of activists in residence that have visited campus in the past."
