Think Tank

In 2011, the Hip-Hop Education Center launched a series of Think Tanks to gather Hip-Hop scholars and pioneers, practitioners, teaching arts, community leaders, administrators, business professionals, policymakers, and experts from the civic, government and business sectors to help shape and strengthen our mission and policy agenda.

The Think Tank serves as a repository first of powerful questions and ideas that have and will be discussed, researched, analyzed, and answered by powerful people who are dedicated to the broader notion of education for liberation.

After three international Think Tanks, the Hip-Hop Education Center in collaboration with Teachers College Institute for Urban and Minority Education published a field report titled, Takes A Hip-Hop Nation: A Three-Year Study on Professional Development in the Hip-Hop Education Field.
