21st Century Hiphop as Literacy:

"Knowing to read does not make you literate.

.......It makes you able to read. Literacy is the ability to see yourself inside the world, inside the words, to be able to connect the information you are given and see your own reflection and be able to articulate, in no certain language, how you feel about the subject matter.

Literacy is being able to understand that you are a part of the human family and your voice & story are relevant." jessica Care moore

HERU- Growing Youth Leadership and Digital Economies:

  • economics- the science of satisfying a lifetime's wants and needs with limited or scarce natural resources.
  • youth leadership-  a young person’s ability to create a unique idea or plan, from their own imagination, that they themselves can further develop and ultimately implement through the deliberate employment of their cognitive processing skills.

As HERU, our unique media literacy lens is informed by 7-guiding principles. These principles serve to establish the foundation, upon which we grown and build community. We use these principles as tools, to craft positive self-images using media, and construct healthy community dialogues around media analysis. Our point is to start the conversations …then engage communities to keep them going.

Below is our media piece of the principles that guide our selves, work, and collaborations.

7 guiding principles: 

- Cultivating Self-Knowledge and Awareness

- Self is the beginning of community

- Deliberately Practice positive and productive expressions

- Respect organic learning and all intelligences

- We positively create our reality and empower others to do the same
