The Sixth Annual Organic Hip Hop Artist Showcase

Every year, the Organic Hip Hop Conference rallies conscious troops from all over the continent and beyond for a weekend of fighting for better communities through activism, vegetarianism, and music. Sponsored by nonprofit organization Difference Makers and Urban America newspaper, the 2009 edition will kick off this Friday with a keynote address and meatless banquet at Liberty City's African Heritage Cultural Arts Center. The list of past speakers is illustrious, including hip-hop legends Brother J of X-Clan, Professor Griff, and KRS-One. And this year's guest of honor — the cofounder of the Hip-Hop Chess Federation, Adisa Banjoko — is an undoubtedly worthy alumnus.
