Mpls Youth Lead Protest For A Better Public School Education
Minneapolis Students are organizing and calling for a higher standard of public education! Yes, once again the students from South High are calling upon their school district to address the ongoing cry throughout the Minneapolis Public School (MPS) District for a more authentic education reflective to the diverse cultures that represent their communities.
You may have seen this Multiple-Award Winning Youth Outreach Team in and around Minneapolis, at your local schools, or maybe even on the local news media. Now the Minneapolis Youth Coordinating Board, or YCB, will have its You(th) Are Here! outreach team in full effect this Friday for the Minneapolis Youth Violence Prevention Week Peace March & Live Concert!
If you have not met this highly praised and recommended team (all the way up to the previous and current Minneapolis Mayors as well as out of state recognition) of youth workers now you will have the chance to meet the team for the first time and see a little bit of what they are all about. If you already know some of this amazing team then just show up to reconnect and build for the ending school year and quickly approaching summer break!
For the Twin Cities, and Minnesota as a whole, its that time of year again when Hiphoppas in Minnesota will be celebrating the Life of Legendary Hip-Hop and Producer Artist J Dilla with Series of Events March 3th and March 4th!

He created a whole new diaspora of sound, groove, and rhythm plushe who is known globally as one of the greatest Deejay/Producers to ever do it!
