If hip-hop is the new Seattle sound, shouldn’t women play a key role in the scene? The idea that the practice and perpetuation of values rooted in hip-hop can help generate real political change is being embraced by a growing number of people in Seattle and worldwide, and various female political hip-hop artists wish to contribute their unique voices to the growing musical landscape. Tonight is “What It Means To Be A B-Girl: A Celebration of Women in Hip-Hop,” a reading, dance and musical performance showcasing the work of those females, including Rogue Pinay and Himanee Gupta-Carlson. The event, supported in part by a grant from the Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs and co-sponsored by the Department of Parks and Recreation, takes place at 7:30 p.m. at Garfield Community Center, 2323 East Cherry St. and is free.
