A Dance Class, a Drag King, & the Pedagogical Possibilities of Performative Hip-Hop: An Interview with Carmen Morrison & Alex U. Inn
Schönfeldt-Aultman, Scott M.; Morrison, Carmen
Multicultural Education, v22 n2 p16-21 Win 2015
Alex U. Inn is the co-founder and one of the two MCs of the hip-hop drag king group, Momma's Boyz. Momma's Boyz celebrated their tenth anniversary in 2014. Carmen Morrison is the offstage name of Alex U. Inn, though "Carmen" now goes by Alex offstage, as well. Within this interview, the names "Carmen" and "Alex" are used to suggest the fluidity of identity and to roughly distinguish activities related to (being in) drag (Alex) or out of it (Carmen). The core of the interview is rooted in exploring how Carmen/Alex employs hip-hop in varied contexts (e.g., afterschool program, performing in drag) for educational purposes, and often with underlying social justice objectives.
