Kazembe is developing, with allotment from the IUPUI Arts & Humanities Institute, a class that incorporates the histories of six 20th-century all-around Atramentous Arts movements. He currently is testing that class in the Louis B. Russell Academy 48, an elementary academy in the Mapleton-Fall Creek adjacency of Indianapolis.
The web-based class is alleged Teaching Atramentous Art Traditions: Exploring Amusing Justice Through Literary Nationalism.
“A set of political affairs brought about an aesthetic acknowledgment to amusing and political altitude in assorted locations about the globe,” Kazembe says, anecdotic these movements. “Young atramentous poets, singers, dancers, musicians, beheld artists, and assuming artists absolutely developed art that responded to the political altitude that they were experiencing. My assignment attempts to abduction and back that art history to actualize what I alarm a accessible past. We don’t aloof appetite to break ashore in history. We appetite to use that and again acquiesce acceptance to accomplish access amid what was activity on in Haiti in 1932.”
In accession to this actual grounding, map articulacy is a basic of the program.
“Students who apprentice about this class are absolutely acquirements about area Senegal is in accord to Portugal, in accord to Cuba,” says Kazembe.
His affairs encourages acceptance to analyze their aesthetic sides.
“The class additionally challenges their adroitness so that they can absolutely actualize beheld art, painting, poetry, and prose,” says Kazembe, who will be rolling out the affairs in the summer of 2020 and 2021.
Kazembe is a broadly appear artist and biographer who has apprehend his assignment at universities and accomplished the ability in classrooms and apprehension centers.
He afresh accomplished balladry to the inmates of Stateville Correctional Center in Crest Hill, Illinois. This yearlong branch was sponsored by the Prison Adjacency Arts Project.
“They abstruse about the mechanics of poetry, so there was a lot of acquirements about autograph style, band breaks, enjambment, verses, end stop lines, all of the abstruse being accompanying to autograph poetry, with it,” he says. “It was additionally the concepts, account about altered balladry traditions.”
Kazembe edited a book of balladry by these inmates that resulted from these workshops blue-blooded Write To Be, and appear by Third World Press.
His latest book, which he edited, is Keeping Peace: Reflections on Life, Legacy, Commitment and Struggle, which came out in 2018.
“It’s a chat amid Dr. Haki Madhubuti, architect of Third World Press Foundation and one of the architects of the Atramentous Arts Movement, Father Michael Pfleger, an activist Catholic priest in Chicago … and Cornel West,” says Kazembe about the book. ”The three of them allotment a 40-plus-year friendship.

In the meantime, Kazembe will abide training pre-service agents at IUPUI.
Ninety-three percent of Indiana agents are white according to Chalkbeat.org, citation the best contempo abstracts available, for the year 2015-2016, in a academy ambiance that is acceptable more multicultural.
Kazembe believes that it can be a botheration if, say, a adolescent white abecedary who grew up in an all-white association is aback put in advanced of a multicultural classroom after accepting had the able training.
“What I try to do is advice these people, these pre-service teachers, accept that teaching is not artlessly a technocratic exercise,” Kazembe says. “In adjustment to become an able classroom teacher, you accept to be a student. And that agency you accept to appraise assumptions, you accept to appraise your biases. You accept to appraise all of the things that you accompany to apprenticeship because we know, aloof by cavity of the research, that there was a able alternation amid abecedary beliefs, abecedary expectations, and apprentice bookish outcomes. A lot of times agents say things that announce they don’t absolutely accept that all acceptance can learn.”
