Breaking Atoms: A Conversation with DDm About Being Black, Gay and an MC

What does it mean to love music that doesn’t always affirm the full you? What does it mean to love hip hop so much that, despite all of the things that say you shouldn’t, you decide to be an out Black gay rapper? During this event Black gay photographer and artist manager Johnnie Ray Kornegay III will sit down for a one on one discussion with Baltimore MC DDm. DDm’s style is rooted in classic battle rap. Johnnie will explore DDm’s journey as a rapper by discussing his history, mentors, inspirations and how he’s managed to navigate the hip hop industry as an out Black gay man. The highs, lows and everything in between. Yes, we will talk about his incredibly popular Secretary of Shade a bit.

Breaking Atoms: A Conversation With DDm About Being Black, Gay and an MC will be an intimate discussion that dives deep into what it means to be part of the LGBTQ community and in the business of hip hop.

You'll be able to enjoy a light brunch including mimosas and music provided by DJ Sir Daniel.

Rising Sage Theatre Presents Rich Rubin's "Class Act"

  • Fulton County West End Performing Arts Center (map)

Directed by Jarrod Walker. Kai, a young African-American woman, is a conscientious student at a prestigious East Coast university. When Rebecca, her sociology professor, seeks a volunteer to portray a living-on-the-edge prostitute as part of an in-class, role-play exercise, Kai raises her hand, believing that she’s helping to “give voice” to a marginalized member of society. Kai’s performance in that role proves to be extraordinarily realistic – so realistic, in fact that unintended consequences soon result for Kai and Rebecca both.
