Where the Ladies At?

Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen Volume 3, Back to Our Roots

 

(New York, NY 02/19/10)- International Women’s Month comes every year, but 2010, has a special feeling sparked by the recent accomplishments of women such as Michelle Obama, Sonia Sotomayor, and Indra Nooyi.  Nationwide more women are making business moves, political strides, and trendsetting accomplishments. Who will be the next to carry on the reins? How will the girls of Generation Y, and the forthcoming Echo Boomers carry on the torch?

 

Kathleen Adams and Lah Tere (of the politically charged Rebel Diaz), founders of Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen, believe that the answers lies in the food…food for the soul, that is.  Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen, a not-for profit collective of arts, entertainment, awareness and education, combines women of color educators, students, environmentalists, DJs, emcees, b-girls, poets, visual artists, dancers, healers, pastors, organizers and activists all with the intention to express solidarity to women’s rights!

 

Birthed in the South Bronx, where there has been a struggle with education budget cuts; toxic wastelands pollution; medical concerns due to a lack of access to healthy fruits, vegetables and health care; and disease from high levels of HIV/AIDS and STD transmission, Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen seeks to create awareness for environmental issues, education, and women’s rights.   

 

On March 6, 2010, from 2pm-5pm at Hostos Community College, join Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen and a host of other women leaders representing various countries to deliver a safe, educating and entertaining presentation to young women throughout the tri-state area!
