Event Description:
Explores bias, prejudice and microaggression using Hip-Hop/Rap music. Artists are discussed that use the N- and B- words to question how language with historical connotations used inside of groups can have positive and negative implications. The pros and cons of "codified" language and the ability of words to define communities are evaluated to assess how perception and alliances are impacted by Hip-Hop/Rap culture and music. Popular culture is used as a lens to unpack "difference" increase cultural literacy and engage students in critical thought. The learning outcomes of this session include: 1) increasing cultural awareness; 2) enabling understanding, tolerance nd appreciation of difference; and 3) strengthening the capacity of students to have conversations about hot topics with sensitivity and cultural competency.
