Our mission is to empower youth via music and arts education in Detroit. Our purpose is to promote equity racial healing and build community for future generations via the elements of hip-hop. As educators in Detroit, we interact with students who display their creative aptitude daily. However, many scholars lack opportunities to manifest their superpowers. Our program utilizes hip-hop culture (MCing, DJing, Dance, Graffiti, and Knowledge) as a tool for knowledge acquisition and liberation. Students master processes and acquire new skills through strategically designed projects and performances, and project-based, game-based, and hands-on experiences.
Kids. Community. Hip Hop.
