R.E.A.C.Hip-HopTown Hall Meeting

The coalition formed in the aftermath of the Tsunami Song continues to make noise:

R.E.A.C.Hip-Hop Reports to the Community on the "Stop Hot 97" Campaign

Join R.E.A.C.Hip-Hop (Representing Education, Activism and Community Through Hip Hop) this Saturday, June 11th for a Community Town Hall Meeting that will address the latest developments of the "Stop Hot 97" campaign that began earlier this year. The free event will be held at Unity Hall, located at 235 W. 23rd Street (between 7th & 8th Avenues) in New York City from 1 pm to 4 pm.

Confirmed speakers include activist and author, Kevin Powell; Newark Deputy Mayor for Youth and Social Services, Ras Baraka; media reform activist, Rosa Clemente; and R.E.A.C.Hip-Hop co-founder, DJ Kuttin' Kandi. The program will also feature poetry and Hip Hop performances by local high school youth, DJ Boo, and the UN Ambassador of Hip Hop, Toni Blackman. The program will be MC'd by activist and cultural arts entrepreneur April Silver.

The community-at-large is encouraged to find out the facts about this campaign, learn about the most effective ways to effect change in media, as well as join in on a celebration of the positive aspects of Hip Hop culture. As a courtesy, R.E.A.C.Hip-Hop will offer free on-site childcare for parents who want to bring their children.
