DID YOU KNOW HIP HOP HISTORY MONTH EXISTS? SIGN THE PETITION!
INTERNATIONAL/ USA – March 15, 2009 – Not many people know that HIP HOP has its own HISTORY MONTH, in November. And…HIP HOP HISTORY MONTH has been established as November, for some years. On NOVEMBER 12, 1974, the name “Hip Hop” was born. Thus, November 12, every year, is the actual anniversary of hip hop.
Why does the public not know this? And for those who do, why have we not highlighted and celebrated this more? Why haven’t hip hop artists pushed or promoted this month and day more, to commemorate their passion, industry, and stance as hip hop artists?
Well, this has changed and is continuing to change? More industry Execs and Artists are jumping on the band wagon to highlight this achievement in hip hop culture. This is fast-becoming a movement of sorts.
WE URGE EVERYONE TO SIGN THE PUSH for HIP HOP HISTORY MONTH FOR THREE REASONS:
1. TO ENCOURAGE MORE “REAL” HIP HOP EDUCATION DURING THIS MONTH
2. TO FORCE THE MEDIA TO HIGHLIGHT “THE REAL” HIP HOP HISTORY MONTH OF NOVEMBER.
3. WE NEED PEOPLE TO VOICE THEIR OPINIONS MORE AND COMMIT TO ACTION – IT’S A MUST!!!!
