    The National Black United Front (NBUF) is set to convene its 3rd Annual Hip Hop Summit.

    The purpose of the summit is to teach the Hip Hop generation how to take political,
    economic and cultural control of its community. This is what Malcolm X defined as
    “Black Nationalism.” Therefore the theme of this year’s summit is “Who’s Gonna Take
    the Weight? It’s time for the Hip Hop Generation to Step Up.” This was inspired by the
    passing of Hip Hop artist Guru of the Hip Hop Duo Gang Starr and Dr. Imari Obadele,
    founding member of the Republic of New Afrika. These were two gentlemen that
    exemplified the principles of Black Nationalism very well.

    The summit begins Thursday October 28th, at 5 p.m. with a screening of the Hip Hop
    documentary “Letter to the President” followed by a Hip Hop town hall meeting
    addressing youth unemployment & violence.

    On Friday October 29 7 p.m. Rashad Sun hosts the “Weight of the World Hip Hop Show” featuring Professor Griff of the legendary hip hop group Public Enemy. Proceeds from the Hip Hop Show will go to the NBUF Scholarship Fund and the commissary of Political Prisoners. These activities will be held at the Mary McLeod Bethune Life Center, located at 140 Martin Luther King Dr. Jersey City, NJ 07305.

    The summit concludes Saturday October 30th with workshops and forums on safe sex, entrepreneurship and the prison industrial complex. This portion of the summit will take place at the African American Historical Society Museum, located at 1841 John F. Kennedy Blvd. Jersey City, NJ 07305.

    The summit will also include participation from
    filmmaker Akintola Hanif, Hip Hop journalist Starrene Rhett, Jersey City Deputy Mayor
    Kabili Tayari & former Hudson County Board of Elections Chair Betty Outlaw.

    NBUF is a broad-based organization that includes all social, political, religious and
    cultural groups of the Black community. It is composed of concerned and committed
    individuals and organizations that have united to assume responsibility for leading the
    struggle toward a better life for them and their children.
