Hip-Hop & Politics: Political Education & Radical Tradition

Mar 7, 2024

12:00pm – 12:30pm CT

This session is part of the special 2024 Crossover Day. Attendance is open to all SXSW EDU badgeholders as well as all SXSW badgeholders. As always, SXSW strongly believes in the power of mixing creative communities.

Educators are constantly looking for different teaching methods to meet diverse learning requirements. Hip-Hop music is born of the daily realities of Black people in America. Minority groups have recognized it as one of the most efficient ways to detail experiences, pass down history, and build community. This session will discuss hip-hop's connection with social justice in America while detailing how educators can use the art form and culture in the classroom to teach political education, radical traditions, and diverse perspectives.
