The Group Shabam
Our group presentation responded the question, "How have artists in the hip-hop community influenced and promoted education in under-privileged communities in order to combat poverty?" The presentation gives examples of several well-known artists in the hip-hop community who have used their careers to influence and inspire education. A range from rap artist Tupac to R&B star John Legend provides for a broad spectrum of the hip-hop community's influence. The group includes research in the introduction, which provides for an explanation to connect the significance of education to deterring the cycle of poverty.
