The EDUTL 5545 Hiphop Literacies Class and Dr. E cordially invite you to the 2019 Hiphop Literacies Conference. We have gathered gracious co-sponsors from across the university. Their generosity has allowed us to host juried presentations from doctoral students, faculty, educators, artists, and community members from across the country and even from Tanzania.

Our Keynote speaker is Dr. Bettina Love of the University of Georgia. Dr. Love's new book We Want to Do More than Survive: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom (Beacon Press) will be on sale and she will sign directly after her talk.

Our concert will showcase socially conscious artists who are active agents of change in our community, including Dr. Crystal Leigh Endsley, spoken word poet and professor of Africana Studies at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. You definitely won't want to miss Mama Sol, a woman rapper and educator, who is active in organizing around the Flint water crisis and more


Registration is only $10.00 and includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, all sessions and concert, all held in our Frank W. Hale Black Cultural Center on Campus. Please check our attached schedule for more information.
