Dr. Love is one of the field’s most esteemed educational researchers in the area of Hip Hop education.

She is an award-winning author and Associate Professor of Educational Theory & Practice at the University of Georgia. For her work in the field, in 2016, Dr. Love was named the Nasir Jones Hiphop Fellow at the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research at Harvard University.
