Houston Public Library present Hip Hop for Literacy
Houston Public Library is hosting Hip Hop for Literacy in partnership with Aids Healthcare Foundation and local hip hop artist and activist, Trae Tha Truth. This fun-filled event is dedicated to celebrating the importance of literacy in our community. Members from the hip hop community will reach out to our youth promoting the importance of staying in school and learning how to read and write as ingredients of obtaining success. There will be plenty of entertainment with music, book readings, scholarship presentations and more.
Eyes on the Prize Records owner Ricky Lee will award a Recording Studio Scholarship, which entails a four hour session, to an aspiring rapper from the Library’s 87 HPL Summer Interns. Hip Hop artist, Jazz, will present "The On Your Grind" scholarship to an aspiring female hip hop artist.
