SIT Study Abroad Ghana: Hip-Hop, Resilience & Black Struggle (Summer)
Understand how young Africans use hip-hop to question traditional representations of Africa, imagine Africa's future, and raise consciousness about globalization and (in)equality.
WHY STUDY HIP-HOP IN WEST AFRICA?
Hip-hop artists in West Africa are challenging Eurocentric understandings of the world and redefining Africa from a decolonial perspective. In Ghana, one of the most innovative countries in Africa, you will engage with hip-hop artists, activists, and influencers to learn how they critique traditional understandings of Africa and African-descended peoples, imagine African futures, and raise consciousness about globalization and (in)equalities. You will have the chance to study, engage, and perform with international hip-hop artists and activists based in Ghana such as Kojo Cue, Wiyaala, Cina Soul, M.anifest, Wanluv, Angel Maxine, Worlasi, and Koo Nimo.
