Bookmark and Share

MusicDish Network Sponsor
Reverend Wendell Anthony, chairman and founder of the Freedom Institute for Economic, Social Justice and Political Empowerment indicated that this year the institute and the NAACP working together will focus in on the evolving business of the hip-hop industry. According to Reverend Anthony, "we are not just doing a summit or a session on hip-hop. While that is important, what's more important, is to use this medium as an opportunity to inform and educate young people on how to improve the quality of the lives. Particularly, young people who are very interested in writing, producing and marketing their talents, must also be fully aware of how to take ownership and responsibility at every level. Therefore, the forum this year will focus in on marketing, professional development, voter education and mobilization and how to protect their royalties, health awareness, HIV/AIDS prevention and building positive character.

Among those who will be attending the hip-hop forum and Youth Career Day with Ford Motor Company all at the Cobo Center will be AJ, Host of 106 Park of BET; rapper Doug E. Fresh; co-owner and vice president of operations of the Atlanta Hawks, Mr. Dominique Wilkins; International Model Tyson Beckford; recent participant of the Donald Trump television series "The Apprentice," Omarosa and a host of others. The forum is scheduled for Saturday, April 24, at 1:00 p.m., at the Cobo Conference Center.

Additionally, there will be a special rap competition for young people who want to enter a special contest for performing and/or writing a rap in one of two areas: "Take Your Soles to the Polls" (Voter Empowerment Education), or "Stop the Killing and Go Back to Living" (How to Stop the Violence in our Communities). There can be no vulgar language of any sort in either of the raps. For contest rules, prizes, eligibility and to enter, please visit our site at www.freedominstitute-esp.org .

This contest is being sponsored by the Freedom Institute along with Radio One. The contest is open to any young person who wishes to enter. Winners must be present at the hip hop forum on Saturday, April 24 to win.
