WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE COURSE?
JLE Academy engages students in discussion-based creative efforts, including debate and public speaking, essay writing, and current events reflections.
This is a discussion-based course that examines the history and complexity of hip-hop culture, its diversity, and role in social justice efforts around the world. Elements of hip-hop culture (rap, DJ, graffiti, & breakdancing) and mass media (including music, television, and film) will be used as tools to critique what we learn and communicate in our society.
We will examine the influence of hip-hop culture on our critical consciousness for social change and use our individual and collective creativity to explore solutions for a more equitable society.
