Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen Vol. 6: No Limits…Knowledge is Power! will take place on Saturday March 2nd, 2013 at the Hostos Center for Arts and Culture in the South Bronx.
Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen honors Hostos Community College’s 45th year anniversary of excellence in higher education and cultural preservation by naming our Vol.6 annual all women hip-hop concert “No Limits…Knowledge is Power!” Our goal is to use hip-hop as a tool to address and build awareness around education. We will advocate for smaller class sizes, the closing of the achievement gap between the rich and the poor and a comprehensive sexual education curriculum. We will engage community, initiate dialogue, and inspire action in supporting better educational opportunities.
WE GET IT!! Our schools are overcrowded and often lack the proper resources to educate our children. We know our teachers are putting in extra time and their own personal money to make sure students have what they need to learn. We understand that the United States spends $293 less per year on students in mostly nonwhite schools than on students in all other schools. We realize that the less money spent in schools on students of color prevents them from having equal access to classroom teachers, computers and guidance counselors. Yes, WE GET IT!! So we, at Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen want to show that despite these educational inequalities, there are NO LIMITS to education and getting to the top. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER and we want to encourage our young people and communities to sticking to educating themselves and others on issues of importance so the playing field can be level for everyone! We can no longer sit back and wait, we must stand strong and stress the importance of education to politicians and government officials in our communities. It is up to US to be the change that we want to see. SPEAK UP and be a voice for your community!
- The United States spends $293 less per year on students in mostly nonwhite schools than on students in all other schools. That’s 7 percent of the median per-pupil spending
- The percentage of high school dropouts among 16- through 24-year-olds declined from 11.8 percent in 1998 to 7.4 percent in 2010; Although there have been declines in the Black and Hispanic dropout rates—which have traditionally been among the highest—dropout rates for Blacks and Hispanics remain higher than those for Whites and Asians
- Of those students immediately enrolling in college the fall after high school graduation, females enrolled at a higher rate (70%) than males (62.8%)
- Young adults with a bachelor’s degree earned more than twice as much as those without a high school diploma or its equivalent in 2010; 50 percent more than young adult high school completers, and 22 percent more than young adults with an associate’s degree.
