The Ghetto Gospel Movement Youth Violence Prevention Initiative is a key component of the larger Wisdom Born Amazulu Community Education & Research Initiative, bridging Hip Hop Culture and Spirituality in order to address and prevent youth violence within our communities.
This Ghetto Gospel Movement Youth Violence Prevention Initiative introduces youth to the History of the Birth of Hip Hop Culture – educating on the original intent and purpose of Hip Hop Culture as a means to combat and end youth and gang violence in the South Bronx during the 1970s. This initiative recognizes that today’s youth are very much disconnected from that early history, and acknowledges that information as being key to our youth gaining a deeper and more meaningful connection to the Culture they love.
The overall goal is to empower and equip youth with the tools needed to make better decisions and Life choices. We believe that the combination of True Hip Hop Culture and Spirituality – helping our youth learn more about themselves in a historical context and helping them to Love Self and others will put them on the path to becoming leaders within their communities and pave the way for positive change.
