Offendum began his rap career as one-half of the N.O.M.A.D.S., an Arab/African-American hip-hop duo. In 2010, he released his first solo album, "SyrianamericanA." His songs, which are often political, resonate with Arab youths, many of whom have embraced one of America's most popular forms of protest music: hip-hop.&nbsp;Offendum has been featured on several major news outlets and toured globally, helped raise thousands of dollars for various humanitarian relief organizations, and lectured at a number of academic institutions, including Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Columbia, American University of Beirut, and NYU-Abu Dhabi.</p> Thoughts and Reflections: "A Colorblind Society" Mon, 17 Dec 2012 15:27:34 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-01-21-thoughts-and-reflections-a-colorblind-society https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-01-21-thoughts-and-reflections-a-colorblind-society <p><em>Monday, January 21, 2013 2:00 PM</em></p><p>This reading, followed by time for quiet reflection and group discussion, is&nbsp;part of the college's celebration of the Rev.
