Backing track created by Amberlynn Lane using GarageBand. There will be several more Identity activities as students will build this song. Additional Resources: A great book to help with identity work with young people is "This Book is Antiracist" by Tiffany Jewell. Additional teacher resources are available online. A great picture book to use to help students name parts of someone's identity is "When the Beat was Born: DJ Kool Herc and the Creation of Hip Hop" by Laban Carrick Hill.
