Join renowned spoken word and recording artist and activist Ursula Rucker in an engaging conversation led by Marc Bamuthi Joseph (Bamuthi).

She has been performing, recording, and releasing works for over 20 years. She has five solo recordings and collaborated on over 100 songs – including with The Roots.

Ursula is a guest artist for Michele Byrd-McPhee’s fall UW-Madison Division of the Arts Interdisciplinary Arts Residency Program. Michele is a dancer, choreographer, and is the founder and Executive Director of Ladies of Hip-Hop and is teaching the course “Hip-Hop Culture, Women & the World.”
