Statement of Purpose

 Hip-Hop Culture is a reverberation of centuries-long resistance to oppression by Black and Brown people in the Americas. Born in the Bronx from meager beginnings; emerging from the ghetto streets plagued by poverty and violence, Hip-Hop is now a medium that empowers people across the globe. However, as some may argue, the Hip-Hop Industry and, to some degree, the world of Hip-Hop Education are no longer held accountable to the people.

The 1st Annual Hip-Hop History Month Celebration: Elements of Culture Hip-Hop Educational Summit seeks to reconnect the most influential parts of Hip Hop with the streets it was born from.

    Excellent opportunity to engage in and celebrate & learn the roots of Hip Hop and its connection to the people, esthetics, economy, image, and arts of urban and rural communities, and society as a whole. I am so proud of my sistah’s Myriah Rose, and Natisha Jordan of Lehman College Class Action Student Group and their resiliency, courage, and engagement in creating, and platforming this wonderful well needed event: 1st Annual “Elements of Culture Hip-Hop Educational Summit” 2013 & CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL CLASS ACTION MEMBERS! See you there “I remember when they said it was just a fad. I remember when they said it was just noise. I remember when they said it created violence. Now its in television commercials and in movies & stage, has Award shows, and has reached the world! Hip Hop, following in the footsteps of gospel, blues, jazz, & R & B, has become a way of life for some, an expression of joy for others, and a political/revolutionary statement for many; it is another African American treasure that has touched and transformed lives.” Yvonne Coleman
