Kick-Off Event (featuring a performance by King Khazm)
MON MAY 21
Kick-Off Event (featuring a performance by King Khazm) @ Red Square, 12-1PM
Come join us on Red Square to kick off Disability Pride Week! We will be recreationally tabling (come learn more about the Student Disability Commission (SDC), the Disability Advocacy Student Alliance (DASA), and the up-coming D Center – a cultural center for the disability and d/Deaf communities that will be opening in the bottom of Mary Gates Hall in the Fall!). Stop by on your way to/from class, or just come hang out!
This event will also feature a performance* by local activist and hip-hop artist King Khazm!
King Khazm has been a formative force in the Seattle Hip Hop scene for years, and his momentum as an artist, emcee, educator and community leader has only grown since he founded MAD Krew in ’95 and 206 Zulu Nation in ’03.
Since he began emceeing and producing in the late 90’s, he has released dozens of projects and has shared stages with Naughty By Nature, Wu Tang Clan, Abstract Rude and other well known artists throughout the country.
It was Khazm’s dedication, along with overwhelming community support, that enabled him to be recognized by dignitaries such as the Godfather of Hip Hop- Afrika Bambaataa, Seattle Mayor Greg Nickles and others for his contributions to Hip Hop culture.
*the performance will be from approximately 12:15-12:40pm
