Join this Canadian project team to explore the possibilities of integrating racial justice and community music. The webinar will focus on the team’s experience implementing The Gahu Project in 2019, in which 400 youth participated in workshops that integrated racial justice education and Gahu, a form of drumming, dancing and singing from the Ewe people of Ghana. The webinar will introduce interactive components of the Gahu workshop, present research findings from the project, and open up conversation on the challenges and possibilities of centering African, Caribbean, and Black communities in music projects.
