Research and Rhymes
Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2023
2023 marks the 50th anniversary of the birth of hip hop! Guest speaker Corey Carter (Director of the UMBC Sherman Teacher Scholars Program) will join us to talk about his process in making music and being a black man in education, as well as drawing connections to auto-ethnography and counter-storytelling research structures within the creative space. Let’s talk about what it means that black men constitute only 2% of K-12 educators and getting creative with your research! How well are we doing on our "Progress Report"??
(This lecture satisfies one of the required URA workshops.)
MRCRTR’s album, Progress Report can be found on all major streaming platforms— Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon.
