The Hip-Hop Advocate Newsletter
Happy holidays to my friends, neighbors, supporters, and haters:
As we approach a new chronological milestone, I want to thank you for your interest and support. We’re gearing up for 2020, getting prepared to:
  • Increase the frequency of these newsletters
  • Expand our acclaimed podcast,Hip-Hop Can Save America!
  • Host our first major Hip-Hop conference (more on that soon!)
  • and much more!
I’m excited to continue doing what I can to amplify the innovative, inspiring, and insightful aspects of Hip-Hop music, culture, and spirit that are all-too-often ignored or under-reported.
What’s that? You’d like to help? Sure! Here are a couple of ways:
All of these little things will go a long way toward advancing our mission to preserve, protect, and promote Hip-Hop’s ability to improve humanity, fight injustice, innovate industries, and save lives.
Questions? Comments? Praise? Just hit reply and let me know! You can also follow me on Twitter or IG, or follow The Center for Hip-Hop Advocacy on Twitter, IG, or Facebook.
Happy Old Year. Wishing you a wonderful new one.
💚 - Manny Faces, Founder/Exec. Director, The Center for Hip-Hop Advocacy
