A handful of local associations have made it their missions to bring awareness to the social significance of hip-hop to the forefront of the Twin Cities mainstream with acclaimed events, and the best part? They are going to be throwing another one very soon in your backyard.

On this Saturday, March 29th, the Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition will be working with The Woman's Club, Save the Kids, Twin Cities Omega Zulu Chapter, among other sponsors to bring "A HIP HOP GATHERING - WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH" to the Woman's Club in Minneapolis on 410 Oak Street.

The event will is being held in honor of March being Women's history month, something all the organizations involved wish to express women's role in the diversity and enrichment of hip-hop as a genre. This event is something of a continued series, as many events since late fall last year have been thrown on by Save the Kids, Neighborhoods Organizing Change, and the Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition have been spearheading to spread awareness to not just the social and cultural significance of Hip Hop, but the historical significance as well.

Each event thus far has had a wide array of notable members of the Minnesota community come out to do a Q&A panel and various in-house performances--as had been seen in the previous "40 Years of Hip-Hop" and "J-Dilla Days". This event will continue that strong line-up consisting of such notable members as Madd Illz (of Guerilla Republik fame), Ashley Dubose (who recently appeared on "The Voice"), Lioness, and so many other guests to emphasize the importance of women in Hip Hop.

Information on the event available on Facebook and on the MN-HCC website
