At the intersection of instinct and genius we find Jamel Shabazz. With a camera in his hand and love in his heart for his people and his community, Shabazz makes you stop, look and wonder. Shabazz, a photographer from Red Hook, Brooklyn followed his gut, triggered to shoot what many would find mundane; street culture in the early 80s. Did Shabazz reach for his camera knowing that these practitioners were in fact the architects of Hip-Hop- a global phenomenon that would reach all four corners of the Earth? Perhaps.

This free workshop will explore his influences, peers, and commitment to the universality of identity. Lesson plan designer: Kanene Ayo Holder

This series of workshops, co-presented with the Laundromat Project, are developed based on cultural and social engagement. The workshops and lesson plans, developed for secondary school educators (all are welcomed to attend), demonstrate how social studies can serve as a connective tool to empower educators to use books, writing, and reading to further engage students.

All programs are free and open to the public.
