Meklit is Musical Director for UnderCover Presents - The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill

Years ago when Lyz Luke asked me what album I would choose if I were Musical Director of UnderCover Presents, I immediately said Miseducation. Good things take time, and in February it's on. We'll be paying tribute to an album that I played on repeat till it was too scratched up to handle. I am especially happy that this comes in the context of Yerba Buena Center for the Arts' Clas/Sick Hip-Hop Festival, where we can situate this music inside of its context.... asking questions about women in the music industry and in hip-hop, investigating lineages of knowledge, and creating alternative collective futures through culture. This is our beat, people. If you feel the same way, we'll see you there.
