From Laurel May @ 944.com:

Rap Sessions: Community Dialogues on Hip-Hop has teamed up with Harvard Law-based think tank, The Jamestown Project to present its fifth annual national discussion tour. These townhall-style meetings will bring together a panel of leading hip-hop activists, artists and experts for public dialogue exploring the possible ways hip-hop’s entrepreneurial spirit could dovetail with economic recovery and to inform youth about the various ways the current economic shift affects them personally.

Bakari Kitwana, the CEO of Rap Sessions, is co-founder of the 2004 National Hip-Hop Political Convention. He is the author of The Hip-Hop Generation: Young Blacks and the Crisis in African American Culture, which is used as a coursebook at over 100 colleges and universities.

Throughout 2010, Rap Sessions are scheduled in ten cities across the United States, with panelists including: M-1 (one-half of the hip-hop duo dead prez); Blitz The Ambassador (Ghanaian hip-hop artist); Toni Blackman (Global Hip-Hop Ambassador, US State Department); Hip-Hop educator Martha Diaz (president of The Hip-Hop Association and Global Hip-Hop Film Festival); Columbia University Associate Professor Marc Lamont Hill (Political contributor to the Fox News Channel and author of Beats, Rhymes and Classroom Life); youth organizer Keisha Senter (Director of Clinton Global Initiative University); Ben Herson (founder of the global hip-hop record label Nomadic Wax); and youth entrepreneur expert Darryl Williams (The Kauffman Foundation).

Says Kitwana,“Now more than ever, we need our youth to think more broadly about global economics, democracy, diversity, community activism, innovation and new models of leadership.”
