Rapping on Obama
Hip-hop artist and dance club performer Freedom Williams signed autographs for fans, including Kim Hartsfield Stokes (middle, blue blazer), a College employee and student, after speaking to a noontime audience at the Coffeehouse on Dec. 3. Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Williams is best known for his vocals on C+C Music Factory's hits "Gonna Make You Sweat" and "Things that Make You Go Hmmmm." He discussed the election of Barack Obama as America's first African-American president and the role that hip-hop culture and young voters played in the election. Today, Williams is a song writer and music and video producer.
