Real Talk for Real Change: Advancing Hip-Hop as a Path Toward Equity

November 19, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Hip-Hop is an urban cultural arts movement rooted in African traditions that has continuously shaped sound, dance, visual art, youth culture, and education. In “Advancing Hip-Hop as a Path Toward Equity,” Hip-Hop artists, scholars, and educators will share artistic representations, discuss connections between Hip-Hop and youth-led movements for Black lives, and share proven practices in Hip-Hop education as paths toward youth empowerment and equity.

The panel features the following special guests:

  • Michele Byrd-McPhee (Interdisciplinary Artist-in-Residence, UW–Madison Division of the Arts)
  • Rob Dz (Madison/Beloit-based Rapper)
  • Michael Ford (“Hip-Hop Architect” and co-founder of the Urban Arts Collective)
  • Duane Holland, Jr. (Professor, UW–Madison Dance Department)
  • Sofía Snow (Director of the Office of Multicultural Arts Initiatives and First Wave Scholarship Program, UW–Madison)

Registration is now open! The Real Talk for Real Change symposia series is open to the public and focuses on the critical issues of racial justice in education by centering the voices of UW–Madison scholars of color and community members.
