Is 206 Zulu only a ‘Hip Hop thing’?
Not completely true. We use Hip Hop as a means to get across the positive message of “Knowledge, wisdom, overstanding, freedom, justice, equality, peace, love, unity and having fun.” 206 Zulu is more about bettering oneself and overstanding the people and environment.
Is 206 Zulu is a ‘Black’ thing?
No! 206 Zulu is for all people of any color, age, culture or gender. As long as you have an open mind and are really ready to better yourself. We have to start to understand or overstand each other a lot more so that we can break the stereotypes that we are “trained” to know from generation to generation. Why would we want to limit peace and unity to just one race or for that matter, even humanity?
Do I have to do something Hip Hop (Break, DJ, Rap, Graff) in order to be a Zulu?
No. 206 Zulu has educators, organizers, activists, working people, young people, parents, etc. ALL walks of life. You see everyone has their only kind of knowledge to bring to others. No one person knows everything. When you get all this collective knowledge together under one roof, it’s very enlightening. That’s what Zulu does. It bring people of different backgrounds together under POSITIVITY. We are all teachers in life whether a person overstands it or not. Zulu members overstands that they are teachers so they do just that. We share our knowledge of what we learn in life and/or Zulu with others so there can be a balance within the other person life so that an understanding can be achieved and from that peace can be obtained.
Who can get involved with 206 Zulu?
Anyone who believes in our goals and can thrive individually and in group settings should consider membership. We will consider working with any organization that believes as we do. This means that we will consider joint projects with organizations that exist to serve our community. We also encourage all ethnicities, ages, abilities, and genders to consider becoming members. The only way we can rise as a people is by looking past our differences and looking again to our families, friends, and support systems, for solutions to problems.
So all a person has to do is join, it’s that easy?
Yes and no. You see Zulu is for everyone but not everyone is for Zulu. There is hard work involved. From the application process to maintaining a voice in the community, from doing charity work to sharing your skills and experiences. If a person wants to learn more, or be a positive force in their community, then it shouldn’t be difficult at all.
