Adam Freas currently serves as the director of the Low End Theory Collaborative (@letccrew), a Sacramento-based hip-hop Education non-profit. This role allows him to tap into his commitments as an artist, educator and community advocate, while impacting educational spaces. In addition, he is a full-time EOPS Counseling faculty at Sacramento City College, where he also serves in the role of faculty equity coordinator. Freas is also currently a doctoral candidate in the Benerd School of Education, where his current research focuses on exploring the impact of hip-hop based education on engaging faculty around privilege, identity, and the countering of whiteness in higher education. His previous publications have explored topics such as hip-hop educators countering academic norms, remixing educator praxis through hip-hop cyphering, as well as housing insecurity in the community college.
Come hear how Adam has played a leadership role in merging activism, hip-hop, education.
