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 Rap Music Industry and, to some degree, the world of Hip-Hop Education are no longer held accountable to the people. The 2nd Annual Hip-Hop History Month Celebration: Masters of the Elements Hip-Hop Educational Summit seeks to reconnect the most influential parts of Hip Hop with the streets it was born from, by putting Theory to Practice with the addition of the Indigenous Remembrance Day Community Outreach Initiative FUN-Raiser.
