For children entering grades 6–8

What is the connection between Hamilton, hip hop, and Shakespeare’s sonnets? We will analyze the meaning and craft of hip-hop lyrics and poetry by various artists and poets such as Nikki Giovanni, Common, Maya Angelou, OutKast, and William Shakespeare to name a few. We will explore the parallels of poetry and hip hop and use imagery and rhythm to give voice to our own unique and powerful stories.
