DEI IV: Hip Hop intersectionality and Creating a shared language
March 6, 2024 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
This training will pair Hip Hop with intersectionality to support shared analysis and to better equip participants who work with youth and families to establish open lines of communication across various upbringings and a better understanding of backgrounds. The pioneers of Hip-Hop were empowered through the ability to voice their reality and find meaningful collective identities by embracing Hip-Hop culture (Chang, Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, 2005).Participants will explore hip-hop music and how it relates to identity formation, forms of cultural wealth, and analysis of social problems that positively or negatively impact youth, through the lens of intersectionality. We’ll also discuss micro and macro aggressions, micro-invalidation, counter storytelling, experiential knowledge, space and counter space. We also will explore competing theories around the concept of implicit bias.
Two continuing education units (CEUs) will be available for participants with social work and professional counseling licenses.

Trainers: Dr. Issac Carter, Moriah Johnson, and Ashley Ritter
