Regardless of one’s nationality, ethnicity and/or social class, everyone is familiar with, and has knowledge of, hip hop.

This panel includes teachers, professors, and popular rappers who will pose this essential question: Can hip hop’s presence in social media and pop culture be leveraged to prepare students for careers and college?
