TY MCCORMICK

Almost a year after the Egyptian Revolution, Pulitzer Center grantee Ty McCormick returns to Tahrir Square to report on the young artists, writers and musicians who are producing creative works after decades of self-censorship.

McCormick highlights the street artists painting the stories of the struggle against Egypt’s military government and visits the studios of hip hop musicians who say they can now present their music to the public without need for government approval. The rap group Arabian Knightz told McCormick they can finally release political protest songs that were written four years ago. Using social networks once blocked by the government, they can bring their daring art and message to a much wider audience.
