Hip Hop and the Art of Peace Education

Hip Hop and the Art of Peace Education, presented at UPEACE in El Rodeo, Costa Rica in 2011, is the first text on the interconnectedness of peace education and hip hop culture! Inspired by The Hip Hop Declaration of Peace (est. 2001), the text is a proponent of the philosophy that hip hop is a culture of peace! The document opens up with the preface, introduction, acknowledgements, terminology, and literature review. Then, it goes on to explore the six petals of peace education, in the context of 5-6 core subjects, and hip hop culture! In closing, it offers a final conclusion and continuing project outline to put the theory into practice, i.e., music projects, media, and events. Based on primary and secondary sources, the chapters include excerpts from our interviews. The six petals of peace education are personal or inner peace, environmental care, attitudes and values education, multicultural education, human rights education (HRE), and disarmament education. A critical educator’s tool to aid in dismantling structural violence, our project outlines ways hip hop may facilitate peace education in classrooms, communities, and in peace or conflict zones! The book and workbook are now available on Amazon, or by direct order onsite! Earth’s currently working on our youth edition, children’s book, and is seeking sponsors for our curriculum to reach minors and young adults in the system in all 50 states for The 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop 2023-2024! 🌎💌
