The Hamilton Education Program brings students to the Kennedy Center stage. Many Washington D.C. students don’t have the opportunity to see live theater or even perform on stage. The Hamilton Education Program gives students a chance to see the popular hip hop musical created by Lin-Manuel Miranda, but also perform their own raps, songs, and poems on stage after the show. As part of the program students from Title I schools in D.C. performed original pieces. Title I schools have high percentages of children low-income families. The ‘Hamilton‘ cast also spoke with students about being artists of color in theater. #EduHam aims to improve teaching of U.S. history for students around the country.
