      (NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C.)—Join Canadian actor and rap artist, Baba Brinkman, for a free and entertaining performance of The Rap Guide to Evolution at Capilano University on Thursday, January 14 at 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Cedar building, room 148.

      The Rap Guide to Evolution explores the history and current understanding of Darwin's theory, combining hilarious remixes of popular rap songs with clever lyrical storytelling that covers natural selection, sexual selection, evolutionary psychology, and much more. This laugh-out-loud comedy engages the audience directly with challenging questions about cultural evolution.

      Baba Brinkman is best known for his award-winning one-man show The Rap Canterbury Tales, which has delighted audiences around the world since 2004, sparking renewed interest in the work of Geoffrey Chaucer. In 2008, Dr. Mark Pallen, author of The Rough Guide to Evolution, asked Brinkman if he would "do for Darwin what he had done for Chaucer" and Brinkman happily took up the challenge.
