The Journal of Hip Hop Studies
2014- "JHHS aims to continue the African diasporic freedom struggle and unite, organize and fight with other oppressed peoples of the world. JHHS' aims mirror the development and growth of Hip Hop. Hip Hop, an African diasporic phenomenon, which begin its flows and ciphas in Africa, manifested in the Bronx and spread to every corner of the world, speaks truth to power and offers a voice to the voiceless. Hip Hop has also played an active role in providing an identity to dispossessed and disenfranchised people. In true Hip Hop fashion, JHHS is immersed in this phenomenon and, in a variety of ways, focuses on the same aims that Hip Hop focuses on."
