Lowkey and Shadia Mansour

During Spring 2010, Iraqi rapper Lowkey and Palestinian lyricist Shadia Mansour joined scholar Norman Finkelstein on his book tour to tell the truth about the Israeli military's attack on the Gaza Strip. Cultures of Resistance was at a number of these performances, where the artists complemented Finkelstein's talks with hip-hop tracks and spoken word. Later, Cultures of Resistance followed the artists to the studio where they discussed the convergence of their music and political activism.
