Inspired by the announcement of the Dreamville Music Festival in Raleigh, NC, the Hip Hop and Higher Education symposium strives to place the William Peace University campus in dialogue with local community artists and activists. As a central location in downtown Raleigh, the campus of William Peace University, through this symposium seeks to highlight issues in hip-hop relevant to young people in our city. This event will explore how hip hop engages with subjects like art, politics, gender, sexual identity, race, economics, violence, criminal justice, policing, social responsibility and activism and how stakeholders in institutions of higher education can use hip hop inspired thinking to begin addressing big questions. Ultimately, we seek to interrogate the ways in which students, community and the academy are consumers of hip hop and our collective roles in highlighting, analyzing & addressing social concerns.
