On Campus: Carlos ‘REC’ McBride

Written by Executive Editor on November 10th, 2009


Carlos “Rec” McBride is a doctoral candidate in the School of Education at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. His talk tonight, “I’m Fighting for My Life:” Hip-Hop; Scholarship; Social Responsibility,” deals with the intersections between hip-hop, scholarship, politics and ethics, and how these practices can become aligned through a form of critical pedagogy meant to educate marginalized people–specifically youth–and mobilize them to be active and engaged citizens.

McBride’s lecture is sure to be an engaging  discussion about the  role of hip-hop as both a political and didactic force and possibility of hip-hop culture as cultural resistance.

Tuesday, November 10, 7:30pm @ Davis Auditorium
