The French and Francophone Studies Department invites you to a workshop with Hip-Hop artist Webster. Webster grew up in the Limoilou neighborhood of Québec City.  Senegalese by his father and Quebecer by his mother, Webster presents himself as a SeneQueb citizen. He studied the presence of African people in Quebec in Canada from the 17th century on and he often lectures on this topic. He created the Qc History X guided visit of Quebec City around the theme of slavery.  He is also a pioneer of the Quebec hip-hop movement and has been part of a musical group, Limoilou Starz, since 1995.  He gives concerts and rap writing workshops all over the world.  In addition to this rap-writing workshop, Webster will give a concert at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis on March 23, at 7:00PM.

This French Lecture Series is sponsored by the Department of French and Francophone Studies, General Consulate of Canada in Minneapolis, The Cedar Cultural Center, and the Alliance Française of Minneapolis and Saint Paul.
