Opening Thoughts

This is the Weblog for Keitha Hamann's Hip Hop Project, as sponsored by the Multicultural Teaching and Learning Center. I'm very excited to be developing modules to help future educators and therapists understand Hip Hop Culture and use this understanding to plan lessons and clinics. I have a great "crew" working with me, and I will be introducing them to you in future entries.
