Talk back: HIPHOP Beyond Beats and Rhymes

Thanks to all who attended our screening of HIPHOP Beyond Beats and Rhymes. I think you'll all agree it was a powerful film and our discussion was just the beginning. Please use this blog to post your thoughts on the film and to share with each other ideas for how to take action. To remind you, some of the ideas we came up with in the screening were:

  • Compile a list of HIPHOP artists with a positive message and distribute to interested parties around San Diego, i.e. youth groups, parent groups, stores and caf├ęs that play music in the background...
  • Organize your own independent screenings of HIPHOP with afterschool youth groups, special interest groups at local universities and colleges, or local community gatherings
  • Any activity that provides kids with the tools to make an informed decision about what music they listen to, or other important life choices

Feel free to throw out other ideas or get started on the ones above.
