Bunker Hill Community College celebrated Black History Month with Dark Matter: An Afternoon of Science and Stories with GZA a.k.a. “The Genius,” founding member of Wu-Tang Clan, hip hop artist and science educator. GZA is co-founder of the Science Genius program, which engages high school students in science through hip hop.

“You can use the scientific method to approach any challenge,” GZA told the audience. “You try something, you experiment, and you draw a conclusion.” He described himself as a science enthusiast—not a scientist—and recommended science as a way of understanding oneself. “Everything is connected,” he said, pointing out that sound is vibration and every being emits vibrational music. His forthcoming album, “Dark Matter,” brings science and music together. “Maybe it will influence the gravitational direction of hip hop,” he joked.

GZA, who rapped several scientific concepts along with his story of growing up in New York and developing an early interest in science, drew an enthusiastic response from the audience. Students peppered him with questions and then stood in a lengthy line to get his autograph.
