Adisa Banjoko had forever changed the perceptions and trajectory of the Oberlin student body. The diversity and depth of his topics was astounding. Not only were we informed of a powerful intellectual history of Hip-Hop, we were also given a once in a lifetime perspective on non-violence. All the students that heard his words were infused wit his spirit and desire to positively impact the world. - Cara Welch-Rubin, Class of 2015
