Hip Hop and Technology, AI and more with Darrell Booker from Microsoft

On this episode of "Hip Hop Can Save America," host Manny Faces sits down with Darrell Booker, Corporate Affairs Specialist, Racial Equity Tech Lead and head of the Nonprofit Tech Acceleration (NTA) for African American communities at Microsoft, to explore the transformative power of Hip Hop in education and the technology industry.

They delve into Microsoft's Responsible AI framework, which aims to address biases and promote diversity in AI projects, initiatives like Microsoft's TEALS program and workshops in collaboration with iconic organizations, such as the Harlem Globetrotters and The Hip Hop Museum, making a significant impact on diverse youth communities through STEAM education and coding using tools like Microsoft MakeCode and Minecraft Education Edition.
