Cooperative Ministry CEO David Kunz didn’t break out in rap (thankfully for Hip Hop Festival goers) but he did get a chance to meet legendary rapper Kool Moe Dee at the first ever Columbia Hip-Hop Family Day: Love, Peace & Hip-Hop. The new event is rooted in bringing awareness to the important areas that affect our community: poverty, domestic violence, education, youth, arts, employment and economic development. A perfect fit for The Cooperative Ministry.
As the name suggests, Hip-Hop day also featured a lot of great musicians and was a whole lot of fun for those who attended.
Pepsi donated beverages to the event.
Hip Hop Day organizer Sherard Duval lined it up so The Cooperative Ministry and another non profit, Concerned Black Men of Columbia could sell drinks at the festival and then keep the proceeds to benefit programing.
We’re already looking forward to next year!
