As you are aware October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I like many others have lost someone to cancer. It might not have been breast cancer but cancer is cancer and the effects affect us all the same. A friend of mine has been diagnose with Breast cancer and we were having a conversation about the lack of community involvement from those in the Hip Hop industry especially when it comes to women issues. That conversation sparked something in me to remain involve in exposing, solving the community ills by using Hip Hop as a vehicle to carry those messages. That conversation helped to bring forth “Hip Hop in Pink” the Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention showcase.
Hip Hop in Pink will feature musical performances by:
Keys, Get Em Mamis , Si-Notes, Golden Seal, Igima, Jacquie Brown Selahchick, Ashley Moore, and The Mighty Paradox.
Motivational speaking by Stephanie Mecca Franklin Ceo of of Mecca Place.org and other guest speakers who will discuss the importance of breast health and early detection.
Dj P-Chris is the Selecta
Hosted by 92Q Rap Attack Angel Baby and Merdj.com Civil Jones
Portion of the Proceeds from the Hip Hop in Pink will go to the non profit organization, Heal a Woman to Heal a Nation, Inc. HWHN
This is your time to stand with us and be a part of something great for the community!
