Conversations that Matter - Art that Uplifts

Featuring Gabriel "Asheru" Benn and Dr. Maia Sheppard

Reception: 5:00-5:30pm
Program and Q&A: 5:30-7:00pm

Maxine Greene, the noted philosopher of arts, aesthetics, and democracy in education, observed: "Justice, equality, freedom - these are as important to us as the arts, and we believe they can infuse each other, perhaps making some difference at a troubled time."

Join GSEHD at the GW Museum for an evening in our ongoing series, Conversations that Matter, where we will use the Enduring Ideals: Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms exhibit as a springboard for demonstrating how arts in education can provide a means for uplifting children today. Celebrated local educator, youth activist, and international hip hop artist Gabriel "Asheru" Benn, founder of the Hip Hop Educational Literacy Program (H.E.L.P.), will be in conversation with GSEHD's Dr. Maia Sheppard, assistant professor of curriculum and pedagogy.
