First rap thesis at Harvard University

Harvard Instagram

Obasi Shaw ’17 submitted Harvard’s first rap thesis, «Liminal Minds,» which combines elements of Middle English poetry with issues of racial identity in America. “[African-Americans are] free, but the effects of slavery still exist,» says Shaw. «Each song is an exploration of that state between slavery and freedom.”⠀

After graduation, Shaw will move to Seattle for a one-year internship in software engineering. As for rap, he’ll keep it as a treasured hobby. “Rap is a genre in which I can say everything I want to say,” Shaw said. “I’ve been writing in different capacities, but I never felt that I found my art form until I started rapping.”⠀
