DREAM Collective’s Next Podcast, “Hip-Hop Pedagogy with the Notorious Gloria Ladson-Billings”
The DREAM (Dismantling Racism through Education, Advocacy and Mobilization) Collective at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville will air its next episode of the podcast, “Blacktivism in the Academy,” on Thursday, Oct. 8.
Episode four, “Hip-Hop Pedagogy with the Notorious Gloria Ladson-Billings,” will feature Ladson-Billings, a noted and experienced educator who has been the torchbearer for culturally competent pedagogy, and Stevie “Dr. View” Johnson, a new generation scholar activist with an artful understanding of how to use hip-hop to educate.
The two will discuss how hip-hop is understood and taught in higher education.
The podcast is for scholar activists by scholar activists, and encourages and facilitates learning, activism and anti-racist action. If you are seeking a community of like- minded scholar-activists, keep listening. Access “Blacktivism in the Academy” on Spotify and Stitcher. Featured will be prominent speakers from communities of color, who will address how to step out of the societal cyclical patterns of the past.
