[Webinar] “Imma put the lil homies on next”: Mentoring, mixtapes, and hip-hop-informed approaches to collecting data

Date: Nov 18, 2021 01:00 PM EST

Although there’s a growing number of studies on the experiences of Black men in higher education, there isn’t as much research on this subject that incorporates culturally sensitive, arts-based methodologies.

The study featured in this event applies hip hop to traditional qualitative methods to create a mixtape* that a) transforms the way mentors can connect with their mentees and b) centers cultural knowledge as an approach to collecting data.

Join this webinar to learn more about new ways to create and promote meaning-making, culturally sensitive mentoring, and data collection in youth-centered organizations.
