Minority Peer Counselor Friends Dayna-Joy Chin, Antar Tichavakunda, and Quyen Ngo facilitated a great discussion after screening BET’s film “Hip Hop vs. America” on Friday (2/10). The group discussed various topics and asked many different questions, such as…
1) What has Hip Hop become and where is it going?
2) Women and misogyny in Hip Hop
3) Is it the responsibility of the artist, executives or consumers to push for good music?

Hear about Saudy’s experience with the TWC during her first year at Brown!
Lorena is currently a Minority Peer Counselor Coordinator and former Minority Peer Counselor. Here are her reflections on the TWC.
Every year the MPC-friends put on the TWTP Remix, where we invite the Brown community to continue discussion that were had at TWTP (Third World Transition Program). Last Saturday, Cecilia Pineda (2011), Jamila Woods (2011), Tommy Tea (2012) and Nick Donias (2012), put on a fabulous TWTP Remix. They focused the conversations around how the -isms (racism, sexism, heterosexism, classism, ableism and imperialism) come into play with identity and authenticity. In particular they looked at language, fashion, media, and sports.
