Check Out Our Flashmob!

“Rap is the form of art that the younger generation understands so that’s the way I choose to express myself because I know I’ll be heard and understood.”

When Executive Director Mary Driscoll heard this from a member of OWLL, she was inspired to write her own rap, “Paper Towers,” which tells a story in rhyme of the various obstacles that people confront in the bureaucracy of the reentry system.

On Friday, May 3, thanks to generous support from the Boston Foundation, we staged a flash mob! OWLL members and supporters danced to the beat of an African drummer outside the Roxbury District Courthouse as government officials and passersby stopped to watch.

The rap performed at this flash mob is part of OWLL’s upcoming production, Hidden Faces of Courage, which opens November 8, 2013.
