A conversation with Dr. Chris Emdin and Dr. Edmund Adjapong. Dr. Edmund Adjapong, a rising star of education leadership at Seton Hall University, who also coordinates #HipHopEd, is also a protege of Dr. Emdin, who was his high school physics teacher, then continued mentoring him as a professor when Dr. Adjapong went to grad school at Columbia University's Teachers College. We discuss their work in culturally responsive pedagogy, #HipHopEd, and critical views about how authenticity, agency, and voice must drive the movement to see Computer Science for All (Citizens).
