It’s all in the research – Lake Washington High School senior published in Journal of Student Research
Have you ever wondered if socially conscious lyrics in music impact the popularity of the music? Well, this is something that Lake Washington High School senior Ndidi Opara took on in an article she wrote recently. In fact, the article was so well-written that it was published in the Journal of Student Research. The article is titled “BROCKHAMPTON: Social Advocacy and Diversity in Rap Music.” The question at the heart of the article is as follows:
“To what extent does the race of a BROCKHAMPTON member and the advocacy they utilize, whether it be pro-social or anti-social advocacy examined through the usage of corresponding social themes, influence the popularity of a given song from BROCKHAMPTON’s SATURATION trilogy?”
Ndidi is an AP Research student and is one of just 32 AP Research students globally who earned this recognition. Her article is currently (as of October 8, 2020) the third most viewed on the Journal of Student Research website.
According to its website, the Journal of Student Research is a Multidisciplinary and Peer-reviewed journal devoted to the Rapid Dissemination of current student research. The journal seeks papers that are novel, integrative, and written in a way that is accessible to a wide audience which includes an array of disciplines.
Ndidi is also the ASB President of Lake Washington High School. You can read Ndidi’s article on the Journal of Student Research website at https://www.jofsr.org/hs/index.php/path/article/view/1233.
