The Black August Hip Hop Project is a celebration of Hip Hop and our Freedom Fighters. Organized by the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement we strive to support the global development of Hip Hop culture by facilitating exchanges between international communities where Hip Hop is a vital part of youth culture, and by promoting awareness about the social and political issues that affect these youth communities. Our goal is to bring culture and politics together and to allow them to naturally evolve into a unique Hip Hop consciousness that informs our collective struggle for a more just and equitable world.
