Ask Dr. Carla

Black Girlhood & Hip Hop

Dr. Carla will be speaking about black girlhood, hip hop, HOTGIRLS, and her experiences using hip hop as a tool for reaching Black girls at the 2014 Hip Hop Literacies Conference at Ohio State University.

Workshop Description


Hip hop-influenced popular culture has been criticized for glorifying sex, violence, misogyny, consumerism, substance use, and other risky behaviors. This workshop is designed to assist educators, mentors, adult allies, youth workers, and girl-serving professionals in understanding the role of hip hop-influenced popular culture in the lives of Black girls. We will explore creative strategies and best practices for using hip hop as a tool for educating black girls and involving them in health, media literacy, leadership, and youth development programs.
