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.

Dear Mother Goddess by Kurt Kacich


Dear Mother Goddess

Mother Goddess who brought me to this Earth, 

Dear, my mother goddess who created me from birth,

Shine your light through me first,

Because without you, the world wouldn’t be everything it’s worth,

Hold me in your arms while I awake to rebirth,


Dear Mother Goddess so beautiful and true,

As I awake I see all Five Elements and within them I see you,

From the blazing flames of fire to the water so blue,

The wind blows forever in spirit as I look at you,

My Mother Goddess so beautiful and true,


Blessed be everything I see all around me,

Blessed be the beauty of nature that surrounds me,

With my hand in yours without you I wouldn’t see,

This pinnacle of good over evil in this world of glee,

Dear Mother Goddess, I love you, blessed be.

Letting go of the pain

The Days of Man are coming to an End

So Come With Me

If You want to Live

Where They Look the Same


Think the Same too

There’s nowhere left to go

So I’m Out To Save You

That All Want To Be Saved

My Hands Been Bloody Since The Day I Came

It’s such a shame

You’ve seen My violent side

So letting go of the pain

Cause I’d like to Save You
