I am Jahi- Artist / Lecturer / Executive

The Intersection Between Hip Hop Culture & Education is an interactive lecture series and musical call to action created by Jahi focusing on the life affirming aspects of Hip Hop from an academic, educational as well as cultural lens.

We use lyrics from songs, examine complex life narratives of various artists, connect historical social movements to now, frame Hip Hop in a pedagogical sense for educators and teachers, and empower participants to build a holistic musical diet. Hip Hop Culture is rich with artistic expression, and we believe that museums & universities around the world provide the perfect environment for this dialogue and family friendly experience.

The Intersection has been proudly presented at MOCA Cleveland-Ohio, The Charles Wright Museum in Detroit-Michigan, The George Washington Carver Museum in Austin-Texas, The Harvey B. Gannt Center in Charlotte-North Carolina, San Francisco State University in conjunction with the SF Human Rights commission, Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco, Chabot College with the California Music Educators Association, Into-Action in Los Angeles and The Oakland Museum to name a few.
