About The Bodega Education Initiative:

Taking place Wednesday, July 13th, at the Pratt Institute, the Bodega Education Initiative (BEI) is a series of talks and discussions designed to create a space of dialogue between the diverse members of the Hip-Hop community. Attendees of BEI will learn about the history and content of Hip-Hop as seen through the pioneers and most intimate members of the culture. BEI will ultimately serve as a meeting point for all the different voices and perspectives within the Hip-Hop community: fans, artists, scholars, and practitioners in order to honor the history as well as add momentum to the culture.

This year’s BEI is "Beyond The Mic" a day of panel discussions and seminars designed to explore intellectual and academic issues facing the Hip-Hop community.
