Guest scholars Dr. Nia Witherspoon and Dr. Mako Fitts-Ward will be present as Tijoux opens up about topics such as “politics, feminism, and the power of music to inspire political shift.” There will also be a panel discussion with activists and the scholars.

Tijoux’s Phoenix appearances are part of ASU’s Performance in the Borderlands initiative that puts together performances focused on issues related to borders, politics and identity. To date, Tijoux has performed as the MC for hip-hop group Makiza, collaborated with Latin pop songstress Julieta Venegas, released five solo albums, and collaborated with numerous artists. Over the years, she has used her voice to help empower people of all kinds.
