Hip Hop Academia: Elevating Marginalized Voices In The Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

We will discover the power of storytelling and media production to elevate marginalized voices in the classroom and global culture, and learn how to effectively wield these tools to reshape the narrative of our country. Participants will experience a curriculum design that is inclusive of traditionally marginalized voices, using hip hop and rap as primary texts rather than the traditional literary canon; voices like Kendrick Lamar, Erykha Badu, and local San Diego artists. We will sample found footage from historical events and learn how to edit it together with music and voice recordings from leaders like MLK Jr. and Malcom X. Other historically marginalized voices from various ethnic groups will be studied according to participants preferences. We will create a short video to serve as a course of study and platform for marginalized voices. Attached is a link to a video that showcases a product analogous to what participants will make. https://youtu.be/UNy6nY3isak
