What happens when a middle-aged 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 twenty 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 that reveal the ripple effects of the Holocaust on her family. Through art, teaching, humor, and pathos, she discovers resilience in the face of tragedy.

Live sound engineer: Luke Santy

including music & sound by Dave Guy, Touré “Southpaw” Harris, Guy Klucevsek, David Krakauer,
