Music is the language of the spirit. It opens the secret of life bringing peace, abolishing strife.” ~Kahlil Gibran

 Freddie Gray. Sandra Bland. Michael Brown. Trayvon Martin. Unfortunately, these stories are not new. Increasingly, conversations about race, class and gender discrimination have risen to the forefront therefore it is imperative that within our schools and youth development programs we not only address these issues but we also stay mindful of the ways that even our youth development programs and structures reinforce discriminatory practices. In this workshop, we will explore the use of music to address discriminatory rhetoric and practices within our programs and classrooms. You will leave the workshop with concrete strategies for using music as a tool for cultural competency. All levels welcome. Breakfast and coffee provided.
