The intersection between Hip Hop Culture & Education, presented in conjunction with the Rock Hall’s Black History Month Celebration
The Intersection between Hip Hop Culture & Education is an interactive dialogue and discovery presenting Hip Hop as a world culture with life affirming principles using videos, audio, narrative, demonstration and performance. From connecting ancient African history to contemporary styles, to sharing a story of an artist who came from the streets of East Cleveland to becoming and international Hip Hop artist and activist, The Intersection provides participants the opportunity to explore various elements of Hip Hop in an educational, fun, and cultural way full of rich narratives and motivation for future artists and educators.
