This Saturday, on July 6th at 8:00 pm, join Hip Hop Bruha’s host DJ Kuttin Kandi for this week’s episode with friend, Dr. Dawn-Elissa Fischer on a conversation about her life journey with Hip Hop, her love for family, her passion for Education and the roots of Ethnic Studies as well as her story on how coalition building became foundational to her work.


Dawn-Elissa Fischer is a founding staff member of the Hiphop Archive and Research Institute at the Hutchins Center, Harvard University. She has served as a program officer for the Hiphop Archive when it was in residence at Stanford University, and she has served as [the first queer Black womyn] chair for the first department of Black studies founded fifty years ago at SF State. Dr. Fischer is distinguished for her research and publications examining applications of international Black popular culture and music in curriculum redesign as well as political education and civic engagement. Fischer continues to consult with special collections at the Hiphop Archive and Research Institute, most recently as a Nasir Jones Fellow in residence. She also recently received the National Council of Negro Women’s Educator of the Year Award for her innovation and commitment to holistic student success, lifelong learning and career mentoring. Dr. Fischer teaches courses that range from topics including hiphop, comics, anime, film, archiving and technology at San Francisco State University where she is an associate professor. She lives in the Bay area with her son, Xola, and their two cats, Max and Lizzy. They like to hike, bike and go to concerts together. Pronouns are: she/hers/they/ them.
