Available to: Grade 12 students and grade 11 students who previously or concurrently are enrolled in a US History course

This course will examine the history of how Hip Hop Culture has created and facilitated social justice movements to address issues such as police brutality, inner-city violence, racism and discrimination, poverty, inequity in education, and more. The course places at its core an understanding of the history of racism and discrimination as they are represented through individual, interpersonal, institutional, and structural forms of oppression. This course will highlight the strategies of resistance used by Hip Hop Practitioners in order to provide examples for our students to emulate and build upon.
