Dr. Bettina Love to Speak at Hip-Hop Chess Federation Grand Opening August 15th!!!
"HHCF is not only doing the work, but also showing us all how it’s done” said Dr .Love. “The work of the HHCF should be a site of study as folks search for defining models of Hip-Hop Ed. I am beyond excited and humbled to enter the space built by two extraordinary educators. I hope my talk will move Hip-Hop Ed closer to the axiom of Black Lives Matter.” After her lecture there will be a panel discussion on Hip-Hop Ed with Arash Daneshzadeh and special guests.
“Dr. Love is arguably the brightest mind in education today, especially where urban and at-risk youth are concerned” said HHCF Founder Adisa The Bishop. “We are beyond honored to have her wisdom mark our Grand Opening. She represents a new wave of Hip-Hop scholars who will refine how we will approach and engage America's youth academically.”
In addition to the lecture and panel there will be speed chess gaming, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu demonstration, artwork by Carlos Rodriguez of RM Klothing will be on display and dope beats will bang hard. For more information visit https://www.facebook.com/events/113042345710060/ or www.hiphopchess.com
