How’s this video to capture students’ interest and hold it as they consider major issues facing cultures the world over? Meeting GOTAL, the first ever all-female hip hop crew in Senegal, Africa, students watch singers and producers team up with DJs to write songs about global health issues and women leadership for the non-governmental organization (NGO) Speak Up Africa. The pulsing video meets National Standards that you’ll find at the site of this PBS LearningMedia resource.
