TASTE OF CHOCOLATE: A MEDITATION ON HIP HOP AND BLACK JOY
August 11, 1973 is considered to be the birthday of Hip Hop. To celebrate, we’d like to share this blog post by one of our Volée members, Karen Bagley, about the bittersweet joy that the 21st century parental nostalgia relay race can bring – enjoying the past, passing the cultural baton, and watching what happens as the next generation takes the baton and runs.

These are all ways I tend to find my favorite type of community within our Oiselle Volée.
