Creating Affirming Spaces for Black Students

Inaugural Juneteenth Celebration

June 19, 2023 11:00 am –1:00 pm

144 N. 6th St., Louisville

Without Black history, there is no American history. In partnership with the Association for Teaching Black History in Kentucky (ATBHK) and the Collaborative for Anti-Racist Teaching, join us in honoring Muhammad Ali’s legacy this Juneteenth with a presentation by Dr. Bettina Love—Living a Hip Hop & Abolitionist Life: Resistance, Creativity, Hip Hop Civics Ed, Intersectionality, & Black Joy.

Dr. Love’s talk will explore how:

• teaching Hip Hop Civics Ed, within the framework of intersectionality and Abolitionist Teaching, creates a space where Black lives matter

• nurturing analytic sensibilities helps youth fight for visibility, inclusion, and justice

• teaching about racial violence and oppression through innovative and radical civics curriculum encourages youth to make sustainable change in their communities

• exposing youth to the possibility of a world built on Black joy, imagination, boldness, and the rebellious spirit and methods of abolitionists is a necessary part of teaching Black history
