206 Zulu 8th Anniversary

8th Anniversary of 206 ZULU
February 17-19, 2012

206 Zulu would like to call upon all Hip Hoppers, fans, writers, thinkers, educators, leaders, young people, elders, artists, and all within our region to gather this coming President’s Day weekend, February 17-19 for the 8th Anniversary of 206 Zulu / Hip Hop Summit. 

206 Zulu, the Seattle chapter of the Universal Zulu Nation, is a grassroots Hip Hop and community service organization that uses the artistic elements of Hip Hop culture as a platform for unity, education, and positive social change. Since it’s inception, 206 Zulu has reached unparalleled heights with programming, events, festivals, educational-oriented classes, workshops, multimedia and more. 

The annual celebration will be held at the organization’s new home, the historic Washington Hall in the Central District, and will feature a range of attractions including live music and entertainment, an urban art gallery, 4-on-4 b-boy/girl competition for $1,000, discussion forums and more. The guest of honor is none other than the legendary DJ Afrika Bambaataa!

Founder of the Universal Zulu Nation and God Father of Hip Hop, Afrika Bambaataa is credited as an architect of Hip Hop who combined the artistic elements together as one and played a pivotal role in unifying street gangs towards a movement of peace and community upliftment. 

The extravaganza begins this Friday 17th, join us during this momentous occasion!
