In anticipation of our Civil Rights Tour

Welcome to Project HIP-HOP's Blog. For the next two weeks we will be traveling through the American South learning about the Civil Rights Movement and meeting with folks who were part of that struggle. Every day a different young person will share their reflections from the trip and we will also share some photos from the experience. For all of you that support Project HIP-HOP this is a great way to see first hand how we are using our resources. For those of you who want to learn more about the Civil Rights Movement, this is a great way to connect with a living history. For the parents of our young people, this is a way to make sure that they are actually learnings something. Whatever drives you to read the blog, I hope you will follow us. Sometimes getting young people to write blogs is a little challenging, so it makes a big difference if they know that there is someone out there reading. If you want to follow us and get an email when new blog posts are up, you can use the link on the right side of the screen to become a follower of this blog. That will allow all the youth to see first hand that there are folks who are reading what they are writing! Mariama White-Hammond, Project HIP-HOP Executive Director
