You Never Know is an authentic City Council campaign speech turned cathartic rap rally educating about how we can change the system from the inside out and the ground up through voting, grassroots organizing, and keeping our spirits high in these trying times. Exploring the culture of violence and fear-mongering that Western media perpetuates, I share my experiences at the gun show, ask what the opposite of a weapon could be, have a teach-in about how/why/where to vote, and encourage a group catharsis through video, dance, and rap music. Can political empowerment for change and liberating entertainment be the same thing? Spoiler alert: the answer is yes. In this clip, You Never Know was performed at The Whitney Museum of American Art with performers Laurie Berg and Zavé Martohardjono on June 23, 2018. YNK was also performed at Red Bull Arts during Forward Union Fair, signs and symbols gallery, in my City Council District 38, the Invisible Dog, and the International Center of Photography Museum on 2018 Midterm Election Day.
