Gerald Liu, a Ph.D. student in Homiletics and Liturgics in the Graduate Department of Religion at Vanderbilt, spoke about “Kampala Flow: Spittin’ and Spirituality in Ugandan Rap” Nov. 4 as part of the “Like a Prayer” series.

Last summer, Gerald travelled to Uganda with Blair school ethnomusicologist Professor Greg Barz and spent time listening to and studying the rap music made and performed there. Gerald played some ofthe music and interviews and discussed his research.

The “Like a Prayer” series, part of the Religion and the Arts and Contemporary Culture Program financed by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, meets on select Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Art Room on the ground floor of Vanderbilt Divinity School.
