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.
