When Educators and Entertainers Build a Movement

Hodari Davis and Candice Wicks-Davis share a passion for lifelong learning, teaching, uplifting, and creating. Their organization, Edutainment for Equity, works with students, teams, and individuals to develop skills and deepen investment and grounding in purpose. Defining “art” as anti-racist technology, active resistance tools, and art for radical transformation, they use artistic expression to inspire emotional engagement and action. Candice and Hodari invite the world into their classroom of uplifting Black lives and voices. Some of their recent projects include a music video with Antique Naked Soul and an audio play, Diamond & Bullets (scheduled to be released in 2021).
