Event description

Description

If you haven't seen Kendrick Lamar's performance at the 2016 Grammy's, you need to. If you are a teacher, there's a good chance it was the talk of the day inside of your classroom. Hip hop's history, like much of literature, is rooted in messaging and narrative, and can be a great tool to talk about social justice inside of our classrooms.


On March 30, 2016, join the Center for Civic Innovation and A3C Hip Hop for a unique conversation on using hip hop as a tool for dialogue around social justice issues inside of classrooms. In this session, we invite our education community to:
  • Have an open conversation with producer and recording artist, J-Live, who also spent time as an eighth-grade teacher of English in Brooklyn, New York
  • The discussion will be followed up with a deep dive annotation activity of two hip hop song lyrics
  • Last, attendees will walk away with tools and resources that they can take back to their own classrooms


Doors open at 6:00PM, talk begins at 6:30PM.
