PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: Hip Hop for Student Empowerment Through SEL


Hip Hop is an urban cultural arts movement rooted in African traditions that has continuously shaped sound, dance, visual art, youth culture, and education. Hip Hop is a deeply powerful artform. This conversation will focus on how Hip Hop is and can be a tool for student empowerment, finding agency and social emotional learning. This episode centers the voices and work of Dr. Tasha Iglesias, Sheikia “Purple Haze” Norris and Michele Byrd-McPhee, as practitioners, leaders, researchers, culture-bearers, educators and women. They will share their stories, models, strategies, and inspiration for mobilizing Hip Hop student empowerment as SEL through music, dance and culture.

Webinars are free to attend and tailored for music educators but are also relevant for student musicians, parents and families, as well as music education advocates. A certificate of hours for professional development participation will be made available for attendees after each session. Learn more about the webinar series and watch past episodes on demand!
