Unlearning Social Constructions of Race and Gender.  What Hip Hop can teach us about Trauma and Healing

Monday, May 6th 2019, 12:30pm
GTU Student Lounge, 2465 Le Conte Avenue Berkeley, CA 94709

This presentation focuses on understanding how social constructions created to marginalize people based on racialized and gendered categories result in fractured relationships within and among people grouped by these categories.  It will use a critical analysis of HipHop culture to unpack what we have learned about ourselves and others, how we've been traumatized and traumatize others, and how we can begin the process of healing.  

Presentation will be offered by Dr. Charity Clay- Assistant Professor and Chair of the crime and social justice program at Xavier University, New Orleans.

Lunch will be provided! All are welcome.
