The hip hop cultural movement has embedded itself into mainstream American culture since its arrival in the 1970s. We see it through fashion on the red carpets, hear it in the music on the radio, and feel the rhythmic beats in our souls. If you haven't already heard about it, there is a non-profit organization founded in 2001 called Justice by Uniting in Creative Energy (J.U.I.C.E) that has been offering a free weekly hip hop program in hopes of cultivating leaders, technical skills, and the confidence to creatively express oneself through the hip hop arts and culture. They use classes and open floors for breakdancing (bboys/bgirls) on hardwood dancefloors, large mural/legal artistic graffiti, deejaying/emcee, spoken word, and urban recording/producing to make this all happen.
The program is free to all ages and walks of life. This profound program is trying to bring people together and reinforce self-empowerment using the urban arts.
