The Mission of HHN2L is to use the (k)Nown ) (k)Nowledge (N2) of Black youth using the elements of Hip Hop to educate and positively influence change through policy change, self-awareness, self-expression, and entrepreneurship.
Hip Hop Based Education (HHBE) provides new avenues for learning, predicated on self-awareness, expression, and critical thought. While nested in the constructs of critical theory culturally relevant pedagogy and self-awareness. HHBE is a relevant theory that seeks to bridge culturally relevant teaching to the classroom.
While HHBE has been reserved for middle and high school-aged students, its nonexistence in elementary classrooms is a disservice for teachers of urban populations and the youngest students who are influenced by Hip Hop through their caregivers and communities’ music, language, and cultural pastimes.
