The Intersection Between Hip Hop Culture & Education is an interactive lecture series, discovery, demonstration, performance 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.
