You never know the impact the work you do has on others. You’re just doing the work… doing what you do and then… someone really forces you to take a good look at your Self and makes you see what others see when they look at you. Could have never imagined that Eye would inspire someone in such a manner – Eye am beyond humbled and honored that someone thought that Eye am worthy of such a tribute.

Hip-Hop Pedagogy Community Education Workshop Series…

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.
