Participants in this session will have an opportunity to interrogate traditional narratives in arts education by positioning Hip Hop education as an abolitionist pedagogy. The session explores the question of how to incorporate Hip Hop education into arts curriculum and provides helpful information for teachers, teaching artists, administrators and policymakers who are looking to expand their racial justice toolkits through experiential application. Dr. Durell Cooper, founder of Cultural Innovation Group, LLC moderates this panel of Hip Hop education pioneers.
