Parents Just Don't Understand: How Hip Hop Can Help Strengthen Our Relationships With Our Kids
As parents, we are often much less aware of the current goings on within Hip Hop and pop culture than our children, and as parents tend to do, we often couldn't care less. In this episode, we make the case that parents should actually care more. Not to be the 'cool parent,' but to better understand our children, foster communication, and in some cases, reveal things that would otherwise never come to light. This episode was written and produced before the tragic death of Migos rapper, Takeoff, yet ironically, this seismic event in the rap world plays very much into the theme of this episode, and we hope that it sparks direct, actionable value in what we are presenting. --- To subscribe to our free newsletter with more stories of Hip Hop innovation, inspiration and insight, visit https://mannyfaces.substack.com/ (https://mannyfaces.substack.com) To support this podcast, the newsletter and other work advocating for the ability of Hip Hop music and culture to uplift humanity, visit https://www.patreon.com/mannyfaces (https://www.patreon.com/mannyfaces)

Stories With Style - Hip Hop at the J.C. Montgomery School in the Kings County Juvenile Center
Last year, a program was brought to my attention called Stories With Style, a student-centric project which gives young people the opportunity to share their stories through rap, beat making and art while working with professional artists in a full-blown, on-site recording studio. This program would be interesting in any setting, but, given my other work in the social justice field, it really caught my attention because the school, https://www.kingscoe.org/domain/136 (J.C. Montgomery), was a part of the https://www.countyofkings.com/departments/public-safety/probation-department/divisions/juvenile-center (Kings County Juvenile Center) in Hanford, California. Now, full disclosure. On one of the other podcasts I produce, https://link.chtbl.com/hhcsa (News Beat), we have reported on the movement to close https://www.usnewsbeat.com/youth-prisons (juvenile detention centers / youth prisons) across the country, and of that movement I am a big fan. That being said, while they exist, I can think of no better way to help those within cope, express themselves, and learn the valuable life skills in the ways that only Hip Hop music and culture can deliver, than through the efforts of JC Montgomery principal Elizabeth Norris, longtime educator Ed Campos, and accomplished music artist, producer, filmmaker and director, Josh Levine, aka OPTX.  After speaking with them, and viewing the project’s powerful video production “It’s Not 2 Late,” I felt confident that these students, in this institution, were being given a vital opportunity that would allow the world to appreciate their powerful voices, important messaging, brilliant perspectives, personal stories, and their style. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pk9kd8zmSCA (Click here to watch "It's Not 2 Late' on YouTube). --- To subscribe to our free newsletter with more stories of Hip Hop innovation, inspiration and insight, visit https://mannyfaces.substack.com (https://mannyfaces.substack.com) To support this podcast, the newsletter and other work advocating for the ability of Hip Hop music and culture to uplift humanity, visit https://www.patreon.com/mannyfaces (https://www.patreon.com/mannyfaces)

Hip Hop x Financial Literacy with Andrea Ferrero of Pockets Change
Peace and love, friends, neighbors, supporters and haters, welcome back to Hip-Hop Can Save America! aka 'the world’s smartest Hip-Hop podcast.' I’m https://www.mannyfaces.com (Manny Faces). Fans and friends know that whenever I’m presented with a societal issue, problem or disturbing trend, any suggestion I have as to how to solve it will include, in some form or fashion, Hip-Hop.  Those who know we VERY well, also know that through my years on the planet, finance hasn’t always been my strong suit. Similarly, financial literacy isn’t something that schools, or even families tend to focus on. Our relationship with money can be overwhelming, and this is especially true in communities that have been denied access to financial services, generational wealth, and overall financial opportunity. https://www.pocketschange.com (Pockets Change) exists to change ALL of that, helping young and old alike, from all walks of life, get a better understanding of money, how it shapes our behavior, how to conquer our fears, and work toward a stronger financial future. And of course, they wouldn’t be on THIS show if there wasn’t a Hip Hop angle in the mix. Now, before we get into it, I just want to let you all know that I’m making it easier for you to follow the Hip-Hop related content I produce, whether it’s this podcast, curating links to stories of interest, editorials, announcing speaking engagements and more.

Hip-Hop Education, Movement & Empowerment with Aysha Upchurch
We often talk about the intersection of Hip-Hop and education on this show -- and for good reason. It’s an area that has produced a ton of receipts showing the effectiveness of merging these two worlds for the good of our young people. This was perfectly exemplified when we covered the Can’t Stop Hip-Hop: The Education Movement conference at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education and first heard form today’s guest. And while we sometimes get lost in the pedagogical weeds, I am so excited to kick it with Aysha Upchurch because not only does she expertly navigate those weeds, but her Hip-Hop spirit is always on full display -- and it is that dance and movement-inspired lens through which she views her work, approaches the world, inspires and empowers others, and sparks radical change -- that sits at the heart of the very concept of this show, and all my work. That Hip-Hop can save America! And most likely, all of humanity. Aysha Upchurch, I promise you, is part of that blueprint..  -- Follow on social media @hiphopadvocacy Email us at hiphopadvocacy@gmail.com Support the show at https://www.patreon.com/hiphopadvocacy (www.patreon.com/hiphopadvocacy) Book a speaker - https://www.hiphopspeaker.com/ (www.hiphopspeaker.com) Sign up for the free newsletter https://www.hiphopadvocacy.org/newsletter (www.hiphopadvocacy.org/newsletter) HHCSA! is a https://www.mannyfacesmedia.com/ (Manny Faces Media) production.

The Healing Power of Hip-Hop with Dr. Raphael Travis Jr.
Two of the more recurring topics we’ve covered on this show have been the authentic, compassionate and effective use of Hip-Hop music and culture in educational settings and in therapeutic sessions, both inside and out of school proper. The intersection of these intersections highlights a huge, overarching concept that I and many of the folks I talk to swear by. It’s the healing power of Hip-Hop. It’s such a good phrase. Such a concise, complete explanation of why I care so much about spreading the good word about Hip-Hop’s potential to uplift humanity and improve society. The healing power of Hip-Hop. Of course, only one of us actually https://bookshop.org/shop/hiphopadvocacy (wrote the book) on the subject. Among a few other things you’ll hear about, Dr. Raphael Travis is a Professor and MSW Program Director at Texas State University in the School of Social Work and author of the book “The Healing Power of Hip Hop.” Dr. Travis and I spoke a little ways back about his work, his research and just how Hip-Hop is able to, well, heal.

Hip Hop Therapy with J.C. Hall
Prior to the pandemic, and at the insistence of one of our prior guests Dr. Elliot Gann, I visited Mott Haven Community High School in the Bronx, to see J.C. Hall’s Hip Hop Therapy Studio program in action. This full fledged recording studio was filled with students, hanging out after school to craft, rehearse and record music and spoken word. They were engaged, excited, and bursting with creative brilliance. On the surface, you might think this was simply a music class, an extracurricular club. In some ways, it was. But it’s so much more than that. See, this is what Hip-Hop therapy can look like. The concept and the program was showcased in the award-winning documentary short Mott Haven, exploring how this work was able to so effectively address grief and trauma in the wake of a school tragedy, and after having seen just a taste during my own visit, I wasn’t surprised in the least.  So, after much too much time, I finally reached out to kick it with J.C. Hall about the program. Hall, a 2020 Jefferson Award winner for outstanding public service related to this work, broke down how the worlds of Hip-Hip and therapy can -- and should - combine.  If you ask me, healing never sounded so good. ----- Remember, if you like what we do, please take a moment to rate and review the show.  And if you feel so inclined, you can help support this show and other Hip-Hop and social justice related work at https://my.captivate.fm/www.patreon.com/mannyfaces (www.patreon.com/mannyfaces).

Hip-Hop x Civics, Education & Activism with Ellect
On this episode, artist, activist and educator, Ellect gave us a taste of how his work with #HipHopIsVoting was aimed at making an impact on the 2020 election cycle as well as the future of civic engagement. As we saw from some local elections, and in a big way in Georgia, these ideas have merit, and can indeed help bring about major change. Ellect also talks about his role as an educator, and as an artist that frequently works issues such as climate change and racial justice into his work. Plus, fun fact: He’s related to someone you know.  All in all, Ellect brings a ton to the table when it comes to demonstrating ways that Hip-Hop music and culture can be used to uplift humanity.
