The Harvest: Celebrating RU’s Sustainable Sucesses

In honor of Roosevelt University’s recent recognition as 2012′s Greenest Institution by the Alliance for a Greener South Loop and to highlight the development of our vegetative green roofs, RU Green and the Black Student Union hosted The Harvest this past Thursday.  The Harvest was a rousing hip-hop and spoken word performance event, featuring DJ Cavem Moetavation from Denver, CO. 

DJ Cavem is a world renowned MC, DJ, activist, Green for All fellow, and sustainability instructor who uses the powerful art form of hip-hop to communicate our collective need to live more sustainably.  Alongside local artists Elyahreev Immortal, Lah Tere, and Phenom, DJ Cavem rocked the house with eco hip-hop anthems, encouraging the audience, swelling to 200 students and guests, to eat organic, compost, and recycle.
