2023 marks the fiftieth anniversary of hip-hop. Join Carolina Classrooms on October 19, 2023, at 7:00 p.m. for an episode focusing on the use of hip-hop culture to engage students in the classroom.

Guests include Dr. Toby Jenkins, author of The Hip-Hop Mindset, and educators using hip-hop to relate to their students and encourage their creativity and freedom of self-expression.

“Hip-Hop culture can inspire a healthy dose of self-mattering to students and educators who have been made to believe that the best thing they can do to succeed is change all of who they culturally are.“ ~ Dr. Toby Jenkins
