Free Land: A Hip Hop Journey from the Streets of Oakland
to the Wild Wild West
By Ariel Luckey
Foreword by Lakota Harden and Tim Wise
Introduction by Felicia Gustin and Victor Lee Lewis
Written and performed by Ariel Luckey, Free Land: A Hip Hop Journey from the Streets of Oakland to the Wild Wild West is a powerful solo show that weaves poetry, theater, dance and hip hop music into a compelling performance that takes an unflinching look at the truth buried in the land beneath our feet and the legacy of theft and genocide.
Now Luckey has penned a new Curriculum Guide that explores the themes and questions raised in the show and the Free Land DVD. Combining social justice and art-based pedagogy, this engaging Guide features eight lessons that include creative activities, discussion questions, writing prompts, contemporary and historical photographs, resources, art projects and more. Along with the Free Land DVD, the Guide is a valuable tool in any U.S. History, Social Studies, or Humanities classroom and for use in social justice education programs.
