Hello friends, neighbors, supporters, and haters.
Happy Father’s Day to all the big poppas out there.
Thanks again to everyone who donated to our ‘founding donors’ fundraiser! Of course, you can always make a tax-deductible donation to our nonprofit org so we can continue to spread the word about hip-hop’s ability to improve humanity!
Podcast fan? There’s a new episode of News Beat out – This unique podcast mixes social justice journalism and original hip-hop in an incredible way.
Also, catch season one of Hip-Hop Can Save America! where we highlight amazing innovators using hip-hop in truly inspirational ways! Season two is coming!
OK, on to more stories of hip-hop innovation, inspiration, and insight. Though we have to start, sadly, by saying goodbye to another fallen hip-hop icon.
💚 - Manny Faces, Founder/Exec. Director, The Center for Hip-Hop Advocacy
P.S. I’ll be showcasing the News Beat podcast at the 5th Annual Newark Riverfront Hip-Hop Day in Newark, NJ on 6/29.
If you’d like a speaker/panelist/consultant to help you or your organization examine ways that hip-hop can improve many areas of society (education, business, social justice, health & wellness, STEM fields, etc.), reach out and let’s talk about talking!
