The arts are a powerful tool in leading and inspiring youth culture toward social activism. With extensive experience educating and amplifying the voices of Chicago’s youth, Malcolm London’s work began in the role of student through the youth poetry scene, and has evolved into that of an educator. This session and spoken-word performance will share insights into how the intersections of race, class, and gender have informed his work spanning community arts organizations and social movements. The artist, educator, and activist will perform original poetry and discuss how he's cultivated a Hip-Hop centric pedagogic strategy to develop programming that inspires youth movements.
