Black Activist Talks Of Legacy And Leadership

 

DELAWARE, OH  – Nationally known hip-hop generation intellectual Marc Lamont Hill, Ph.D., will speak at Ohio Wesleyan University about leadership and legacies in the African and African American communities at 7 p.m. March 29.

 

Hill speaks and writes about culture, politics, and education, and has provided regular commentary for media outlets including National Public Radio, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News Channel, The Washington Post, Essence Magazine, and The New York Times.

Hill started working in social justice activism as a youth in Philadelphia. He earned a doctoral degree from the University of Pennsylvania and considers himself an anthropologist of education. His research focuses on intersections between culture, politics, and education. He is an associate professor of education at Teachers College at Columbia University and holds an affiliated faculty appointment in African American studies at the Institute for Research in African American Studies at Columbia University.

Hill is a founding board member of My5th, a nonprofit organization devoted to educating youth about their legal rights and responsibilities. He has worked on various projects to assist African American and Latino youth, including creating a literacy project that uses hip-hop culture to increase school engagement and reading skills among high school students.

In 2005, Ebony Magazine named Hill one of America’s top 30 black leaders under the age of 30. His Ohio Wesleyan visit is being sponsored by the Student Union on Black Awareness.

Ohio Wesleyan University is one of the nation’s premier small, private universities, with more than 90 undergraduate majors, sequences, and courses of study, and 23 Division III varsity sports. Located in Delaware, Ohio, just minutes north of Ohio’s capital and largest city, Columbus, the university combines a globally focused curriculum with off-campus learning and leadership opportunities that translate classroom theory into real-world practice. OWU’s close-knit community of 1,850 students represents 45 states and 52 countries. Ohio Wesleyan earned a 2009 Presidential Award for Excellence in General Community Service, is featured in the book “Colleges That Change Lives,” and is included on the “best colleges” lists of U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review.
