(BPRW) Rhythms of Change: Exploring Hip Hop's Role in the Black Community

Meet Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Jr., President and CEO of the Hip Hop Caucus

(Black PR Wire) Miami, FL – Since its inception 50 years ago, Hip Hop has served as Black culture's response to decades of racism and oppression that continues to impact the Black community. Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Jr., President and CEO of the Hip Hop Caucus, joined BPRW’S Thrivin in Color podcast to discuss his inspiration behind starting the Hip Hop Caucus and the social significance of Hip Hop.

During this episode, Rev. Yearwood engages in an insightful conversation with podcast host Camry Brown about Hip Hop’s contribution to social change and the role celebrities play in raising awareness and driving action about the crucial issues that affects all communities - especially the Black community. “In this episode, Rev. Yearwood really breaks down how Hip Hop has shaped our culture and the many ways it has been used for the betterment of our people,” said Camry. “This episode is really one for the culture and has a message that our listeners will enjoy.”

The Hip Hop Caucus is a national, non-profit and non-partisan organization that connects the Hip Hop community to the civic process to build power and create positive change. Since being founded by Rev. Yearwood in September of 2004, the Hip Hop Caucus has focused on core issues impacting underserved and vulnerable communities, with programs and campaigns that support solution-driven community organizing led by today’s young leaders.
