This feature describes the efforts of the Oviatt Library at California State University, Northridge to offer programming presenting hip-hop and spoken word poetry. These events, begun in 2016, feature genres relevant to the university's diverse and global enrollment. Though not traditional library presentations, they recognize the wide appeal of hip-hop and the importance of oral traditions to some cultures while providing a platform for the participants to express their diverse views and experiences.
