No other words or information is needed - BOOM - enough said!)

Ryan Daniels, Hip Hop Performer: He’s thoughtful, articulate, and deliberate in a way that makes you feel as if he’s searching for an absolute truth. Daniels, a local musician, describes his music as reggae hip-hop (with a little island flair), lives in Woodbury with his wife, Sarah, and 4-year-old son, Royce. He’s a family man who takes great pride in his faith. He’s a musician who specializes in bringing a message of faith and hope to a genre of music (hip hop) that can get criticized heavily.
Black Spoken Word refers to poems written by African Americans. It is a sub-section of African American literature filled with cadence, intentional repetition and alliteration. African American Spoken Word predates the written word and is linked to a rich oral tradition.
African-American dance has developed within Black American communities in everyday spaces, rather than in studios, schools or companies. These dances are usually centered on folk and social dance practice, though performance dance often supplies complementary aspects to this.
