The Black August Hip Hop Project was started by the Malcolm X Grassroots
Movement to promote human rights and raise awareness about U.S. political
prisoners unjustly incarcerated worldwide. By leveraging the influence and
global development of Hip Hop culture and by facilitating exchanges between
international communities about the social and political issues that affect
our global communities, Black August holds annual fundraising concerts that
inform our collective struggle for a more just, equitable and human world.
Since August of 1998, Black August has sold out at Tramps, the Bowery
Ballroom, Synod Hall, BB Kings, The Nokia Theatre, and the Brooklyn Café, to
name a few. The project has featured artists such as Mos Def, Talib Kweli,
Erykah Badu, David Banner, Common, Dead Prez, Fat Joe, The Roots, Gil
Scott-Heron, Dave Chapelle, EPMD, Q-Tip, and many more. Internationally,
Black August has facilitated 8 international trips with artists and
activists to Cuba , South Africa, Tanzania, Brazil, and Venezuela.
