Jul/28/2011 Mentor Series – Media & Entertainment

Posted by Richard • July 28th, 2011

There is more to entertainment than reality television and hip hop. You don’t have to be in front of the camera or the microphone to be a star. Media includes print, radio, television even the internet. Meet KRON 4’s Pam Moore and others and learn more about what it takes.

Location & Time:
1300 on Fillmore
1300 Fillmore Street

11:00 am

This summer, we are embarking on a project that reaches out to support our next generation of leaders. The MAGIC Mentor Series will develop new partnerships and career exploration opportunities for middle and high school students. We expect the series to inform and transform their college and career paths. This exciting initiative will connect our youth with local professionals and serve as tool for preparing for future.

The MAGIC Mentor Series will invite professionals to make a difference in the lives of young people wrestling with peer pressure and exposed to the tragedies of poverty and crime first hand. This project also supports Mo’ MAGIC’s efforts to decrease summer learning loss through experiential learning. More than fifty percent of the academic achievement gap can be traced back to summer learning loss, which is experienced at a higher rate among minorities and low income youth.

The MAGIC Mentor series will include panel presentations as well as an opportunity for participants to speak with presenters in small groups. Each presenter will be asked to give a two-minute introduction (focused on if they went to college how they benefited from doing so and if not, the role experience and other forms of education, how/if that can happen today). The remaining time is spent having a student-centered discussion about what role college/education played in their career choice and how to prepare for that career.

The MAGIC Mentor Series will take place on Thursdays during the summer (June 9 – July 28) and guests will be invited to participate in the panels and small discussion groups. If you see an area in which you wish to particpate, simply contact the Mo’ MAGIC Office at 415-563-5207 or email info@momagic.org.

Jul/23/2011 Hood Games Festival | Skateboarding, Fashion, & Conscience Hip-Hop

Posted by Richard • July 23rd, 2011

On July 23rd at the AAACC, we will do a rendition of Hood Games, an all day festival styled event centered around skateboarding, fashion, and conscience hip hop music. At this event, we will offer a full scholarship to the Woodward Skate Camp.

July 23, 2011
African American Art & Culture Complex
762 Fulton Street, SF
Time: 10:00 am to 8:00 pm
Cost: Free

Hood Games is a grassroots level community event started in 2005 in East Oakland as more inner-city youth were gravitating to skateboard culture. The events serve as a bridge between urban communities and the skate lifestyle while incorporating art, music, film and dance performances. Hood Games also collaborates with local schools, youth centers, city governments, local authorities, the skate community and city parks to make a memorable experience for the kids and families.

Special guests include: Fashawn, Martin Luther, The Memorials, Rob Young, Panopoly, Sarai and J Rocka, Karl Kauses, Nyjah Huston, Respin, and Aebldee.

Vitamin Water will assist in giving away two scholarships to underserved kids for the Woodward Camp. Applications can be downloaded at Hood Games Woodward Scholarship (doc).
