Speaker: Dr. Bettina Love

Dr. Bettina Love, our 2016 keynote speaker and esteemed author/scholar, recently launched a new online Hip Hop civics curriculum, GET FREE. Inspired by the ingenuity, political energy, love, and DIY model of underground Hip Hop, GET FREE aims to play a critical role in the movement for justice by reinforcing citizenship, shared leadership, community, civic engagement, and intersectional justice in the lives of young people. In this webinar, Dr. Love discusses the ins and outs of GET FREE and the role music and the arts can play in teaching students to combat racial and social injustice.
