The HHAAE extends a huge thank you to all who participated, attended, and helped to make our 1st annual Global Conference on Hip Hop Education a success. We are grateful for your commitment to advocating for Hip Hop as a tool to empower communities around the globe and we greatly appreciate your willingness to explore Hip Hop culture in the classroom as a means to engage our youth where they are. There is much more work to be done and you make this mission possible because you LIVE it.  You give us and others the fuel to continue on this journey because we know you are walking with us side by side. Blessings to all of you as you return to your communities. We hope you have been inspired and recharged to be the change you want to see and the advocate that Hip Hop needs!
