The Rutgers Cultural Center Collaborative invites you to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy of excellence by attending "A Presentation and Conversation with Dr. Bettina Love: Living a Hip Hop & Abolitionist Life" virtually on Thursday, January 20 at 6 p.m.
Dr. Love will discuss how Hip Hop Civics Ed, when linked to the framework of intersectionality and Abolitionist Teaching, creates a space where Black lives matter and analytic sensibilities are nurtured to engage youth in the work of fighting for visibility, inclusion, and justice.
This event will also feature a conversation with Rutgers University President Jonathan Holloway, and a moderated Q&A.
Dr. Love is the Georgia Athletic Association Professor in Educational Theory and Practice at University of Georgia, where she teaches on hip-hop based education, black girlhood, diversity and social justice, hip hop feminism and critical media literacy.
