Hip-hop Can Change the World

Hip-hop has impacted our lives in many ways. We use hip-hop to process difficulties and to express celebration. Every school we visit and at every after-school program we run, young artists continue hip-hop's legacy of writing songs to define our own lives and our own neighborhoods, instead of allowing others to write those stories for us. Hip-hop continues to produce learning from technological innovations to social justice initiatives that educate the public. The process of producing music, writing/recording/performing lyrics, dancing and visual art aid in our own mental health and in healing our communities. Grab some swag and represent hip-hop culture!
