“The Universe is Infinite, let Literacy be your Rocketship”
Hip-Hop is a Global Language utilized by youth
The form of expression or communication, referred to as Hip-Hop, can be utilized to inspire students of all backgrounds to develop an interest or passion for literacy.
ARE U WASTING TIME? Dead Babies: Volume I is a Hip-Hop influenced, youth empowerment instructional learning book and classroom workshop series centered on literacy. The book integrates academia and the arts, through the lens of hip-hop, to create highly engaging and interactive lesson plans and workshops for students.
The name, ARE U WASTING TIME? Dead Babies: Volume I, was derived from the notion that a segment of today’s youth are seemingly driven or “set-up” to be spiritually, emotionally, socially, and economically disconnected from the values that have and continue to drive modern society.
This is a highly provocative, live performance-based educational model that can be delivered in classroom setting, in-person or online. The model allows the ARE U WASTING TIME? Youth Empowerment & Non-Profit Corporation to engage students from anywhere in the world. It opens the door for greater impact and provides flexibility in how youth are served, despite the challenges of a pandemic.
As workshop participants equipped with our Hip-Hop influenced book, students learn to express themselves through reading, creative writing, and public speaking.
Progressive academics refer to this style of educational engagement as an abolitionist-styled approach to reimagine learning and reach students that have historically been marginalized.

Abolitionist Teaching is built on the creativity, imagination, boldness, ingenuity, and rebellious spirit and methods of abolitionists to demand and fight for an educational system where all students are thriving, not simply surviving.
