New Report Highlights Hop-Hop's Impact On Social Change In Communities Of Color

 Hip Hop is an international phenomena that began as a social justice movement in Harlem in the 1970s.  While the commercial aspects of Hip Hop are more recognized, there is a strong connection to social justice issues among the Hip Hop community, particularly among youth of color.  In the new report Hip Hop and Social Justice Initiative, ZeroDivide shares our experience working with this community and supporting their growth and ability to impact positive social change.


The report documents the evolution and outcomes of ZeroDivide’s Hip Hop and Social Justice Initiative, a philanthropic model connecting two powerful, interconnected phenomenas: technology and the youth-inspired folk art, “Hip Hop.”

We learned lessons vital to the success of funding emerging youth of color-centered organizational models and invite you to read about our discovery by viewing our
digital book and the corresponding report written by Hip Hop expert and author Bakari Kitwana.

ZeroDivide invests in community enterprises that leverage technology to benefit people in vulnerable and other underserved communities. Through our community, philanthropic and corporate partnerships, we help nonprofit organizations find new revenue sources to become more self-sustaining.
