Cal Poly Humboldt's 10th Annual Hip Hop Conference 

 Created by Afro-descendant populations in the United States, Hip Hop is a genre that has proliferated nearly every corner of the globe. From its early inception until now, Hip Hop has evolved into not only an artform but also a cultural movement inciting social action. During this, our tenth annual conference, we will explore how Hip Hop has reached a global audience and acted as a catalyst for the formation of new worldviews for the last fifty years.

Critical Race, Gender & Sexuality Studies at Cal Poly Humboldt joins the global movement in defense of Black life. We affirm our solidarity with Black Lives Matter and Black communities everywhere. We mourn the lives and demand justice for Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Tony McDade, and all Black people who have been killed and terrorized by police brutality and the carceral state. 

As a department rooted in social justice, we are committed to using education to fight systemic racism that perpetuates violence against Black lives and to further coalition-building across communities. We are moved by the uprising of people and their collective solidarity, outrage, and despair which have filled and transformed the streets of this country and the world. We invite our students, alumni, faculty, staff, and local community to resist and work to dismantle white supremacy. It is essential that we get -- and stay -- involved with movements for Black lives, donate to critical funds, demand transparency and justice from elected officials, and support community efforts for transformative long-term change. Let's mobilize and organize. 

Here are some key resources and ways to defend Black lives.
