ABOUT THE SHOW:
What happens when a teaching artist survives a near-fatal car accident and collides with the oncoming traffic of Hip Hop culture? In Yo Miss! Teaching Inside the Cultural Divide, Vol. 1 Judith Sloan remixes stories from thirteen years of teaching immigrant/refugee teenagers and incarcerated youth as they grapple with the cataclysmic global events that shaped them. Through poetry, vivid character portrayals and music, Sloan brings their tales to life along with her own stories revealing the ripple effects of the Holocaust on her family. Using poetry, music, and character portrayals, she finds resilience in the face of tragedy.
