        from Words Beats & Life Added 41 1 0

        There are a number of Hip Hop foundations throughout the United States, all of which are taking different approaches to promoting social change. This brunch is designed to present some of the most effective members of this emerging field of philanthropy to present the work it’s doing. It will be an opportunity for each foundation to talk about the priorities and accomplishments and the successes they have had in the past 3-5 years. As the Hip Hop philanthropic community is small but having an important impact, this is especially important.

          • (Teach-In) U.N.I.T.Y.: Visionary Leaders of Our Field


            from Words Beats & Life Added 46 0 0

            Hip Hop started with parties in apartments, parks and clubs. Hip Hop has always been about having fun and celebrating, regardless of your status as a “have” or “have-not.” The musical genre has been about making the most out of the least. Over its more than 30-year history, this essence has not changed. In fact, people all over the world have taken the celebratory nature of the culture to a whole new level. Selected by their peers, the speakers on this panel are the preeminent representatives of elements that reflect the best in Hip Hop hop. The panelists will discuss the future of Hip Hop preservations, celebrations, organizations and “edutainment”. As the leaders in this field, we want to not only to learn from what the panelists have accomplished, but to also learn more about their vision for Hip Hop in 2010 and beyond.

              Facilitated by A. J. Robinson, Jr., Ph.D, Chairman and CEO Symphonic Strategies, Inc http://www.symphonicstrategies.com/ (For Artists, Arts Managers and Arts Educators) “Be Healthy” was a major success in the effort of Words Beats & Life to continue to build the capacity of hip-hop artists, organizations and educators. The event was sold out and we anticipate that this will be the first in a series of three workshops that WBL hosts in DC as lead up events to the International Teach-in, Remixing the Art of Social Change: A Hip-Hop Approach. Here is what two of our Cipher members had to say about the workshop. "I wanted to thank you for today’s workshop. It was really fantastic. I truly appreciated the information and exchange. I think that you are really providing invaluable resources to our community." - Simone Jacobson AJ led a great workshop. He is thoughtful and personable with really wonderful insights. I was expecting a typical workshop with the usual advice, but this was really thought-provoking. I left inspired with a renewed focus. - Holly Bass For More Information: wblinc.org Twitter: @WordsBeatsLife Facebook: Words Beats & Life Instagram: WordsBeatsLife Tumblr: Words Beats & Life

                    Finding Her Own Voice: Flannery O'Connor's Prayer Journal A Conversation with Her Friend and Biographer, WILLIAM A. "BILL" SESSIONS Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center As we approach the 50th anniversary of Flannery O'Connor's death, her unique voice continues to amuse and provoke readers of all stripes who encounter her stories or her published letters. But where did she discover this voice, at the same time hilariously satirical and profound (even mystical)? We have a fascinating new window into Flannery O'Connor's journey from self-professed "mediocrity" to literary immortality due to the publication of her Prayer Journal in November 2013. This manuscript, which O'Connor wrote solely for herself and God while studying in the famous Iowa's Writer Workshop, was unearthed by her friend William A. "Bill" Sessions as he researched her authorized biography. Crossroads is pleased to present an evening with Bill Sessions to discuss the many questions raised by the prayer journal not only for Flannery's life, but for the struggle of every artist to remain true to their own gift and of every believer to face God and oneself without pretense. A question and answer period will allow us to touch all of the other aspects of O'Connor's life and times that shaped her voice. The event is open to the public and free of charge.
