Hip hop is an urban cultural arts movement rooted in African traditions that has continuously shaped sound, dance, visual art, youth culture, and education. In this Real Talk for Real Change symposium, Advancing Hip Hop as a Path Toward Equity, we bring together hip hop artists, scholars, and educators to share artistic representations, discuss connections between hip hop and youth-led movements for Black lives, and to share proven practices in hip hop education as paths toward youth empowerment and equity.

The Real Talk for Real Change symposia series is open to the public and focuses on the critical issues of racial justice in education by centering the voices of UW–Madison scholars of color and community members.
