On the late morning of Friday, March 30th, members of 206 Zulu hosted an assembly at SBOC Middle School in Queen Anne in coordination with El Centro De La Raza‘s Hope For Youth Program. The two 35 minute sessions brought in around 300 students. It was a success, as the students, school administration, and staff could be seen smiling, waving there “hands in the air” while being introduced to the culture of Hip Hop. The panel gave testament to their personal relationships and experiences as practitioners of Hip Hop. The underlying theme of the presentations illustrated the healing and empowering principles that Hip Hop has, while spreading awareness of Hip Hop as an international culture that transcends race, geography, language, age, gender, and social status.
