Students from Professor Kisha Daniel's service-learning course "Critical Pedagogy of Hip Hop (EDUC 290S)" and community partners from the Boys and Girls Club of Durham and Orange County pose for a group photo in front of the “Greensboro Four” at the International Civil Rights Center and Museum in Greensboro. Also pictured is the co-founder of the museum, Melvin Alston. A native of Durham, he attended NCCU and is currently serving as a Guilford County Commissioner.

After the tour, students and community partners debriefed and collaborated on lessons that incorporated newfound knowledge from the tour and exhibits.

EDUC 290S examines the role of critical pedagogy in developing learning environments that engage and empower youth, and explores the historical and socio-cultural aspects of education initiatives, teaching and learning strategies, and educational policy issues that contribute to marginalization.
