Over the past 13 years, Hip Hop in the Heartland has provided educators and community members an opportunity to connect hip hop as both an art form and an instructional tool to improve the academic success of students who remain marginalized in our schools.
Join us for a series of virtual events that will bring together leading educators, professors, emcees, and activists. These experts utilize the media of spoken word, hip hop, and urban arts as relevant, dynamic, and necessary educational tools to engage students across multi-disciplinary curricula.
Sessions will create a platform for participants to learn about the scope of hip hop history, culture, and politics; deepen their practice as spoken word and hip hop educators; and engage in best-practice approaches to student-centered liberatory education models.
