Origins…

As Eye continue to Innerstand
All that Makes Me Who Eye Am…

Eye come to a Period of Time
Hidden by Darkness
A Period of Time
Hidden beneath
The Fog of My Mind

As Eye continue to Innerstand
All that Makes Me Who Eye Am…

Scenes from Days of Old
From a Period of Time
That Escapes My Mind

Here You Go
Here’s a Peek into Your Past
Too quick
Too quickly They do Flash
In the Forefront of My Mind
From a Period of Time
Hidden Beneath and Within
The Darkness and the Fog
The Fog
Flickers of Light
Taking Me Back
To Who Eye was Before

As Eye continue to Innerstand
All that Makes Me Who Eye Am…

Eye close My Eyes
And Inhale Deeply

As Eye continue to Innerstand
All that Makes Me Who Eye Am…

It’s the Exhale
That Truly Pains Me

The letting Go of
People
Places and
Things

That Eye can’t even Recall as Memories
Being so disconnected
To Who Eye used to Be
Spiritually
Personally
Historically
Other Wordly
Is the Experience of Me
Wandering and Wondering
Awakened and Initiated
But in ways still fast asleep

As Eye continue to Innerstand
All that Makes Me Who Eye Am…

Eye Begin to Create My Own Eyedentity
One that Empowers Me
And Others
Always the Others…

As Eye continue to Innerstand
All that Makes Me Who Eye Am…
Eye Innerstand My Purpose for Being.

Hip-Hop Pedagogy Community Education Workshop Series…

11015107_1543869095867285_538787233685055313_n

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, the Hip Hop Industry and, to some degree, the world of Hip Hop Education are no longer held accountable to the people. This Program seeks to reconnect the most influential parts of Hip Hop with the streets it was born from.
– Zulu King K~Swift

The Hip-Hop Pedagogy Community Education Workshop Series is designed to promote the multidisciplinary pedagogy of Hip-Hop Culture. Recognizing Hip-Hop as a major influence on youth culture today, this workshop series will inspire participants through the Five Elements of Hip-Hop Culture. Workshops will expose families to vital resources and services that will enable them to build up themselves and surrounding community.
