Gilded Generation

A mixtape for social justice
Clark Street Community School

This mixtape was conceived, written, recorded and produced by students enrolled in Clark Street Community School's Hip Hop class.

Recorded at the Media Lab inside Madison's Central Library, their social justice mixtape brings student voices and concerns out of the classroom and into your earhole. Special thanks to Mike Dando, Rob Dz and Audrey Martinovich for their mentorship in the writing, recording and fine-tuning of teen voices.
