Help plan Cleveland "What the (Bleep) Happened to Hip Hop" event this July

April 9, 2015

What the (Bleep) Happened to Hip Hop is a national public education campaign to address the corporatization of music, dance, and other art forms and shine a critical lens on race, class, and gender in contemporary American culture. What the (Bleep) Happened to Hip Hop is a national joint project of Hip Hop Congress and Move to Amend.

Local events include education on corporatization of culture (including music and other art forms), actions (including Move to Amend initiatives and other efforts at self-determination) and performance (usually in the evening). Local events can be one or more days.

Recent national podcast of the project at:  http://www.blogtalkradio.com/movetoamend/2015/02/06/move-to-amend-report...  A short 5 minute video featuring national Hip Hop Congress Director Shamako Noble is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7DGZrxWKGw

What the (Bleep) events have already taken place in Ann Arbor, Portland, Denver, Oakland, San Jose, Olympia, Tacoma, Seattle, Houston and Detroit.

Anita Tobin from Cleveland (and national Hip Hop Congress committee member) is leading the effort in Cleveland. If interested in helping plan the Cleveland event, contact her at artobin84 [at] gmail.com
