Community Teachers Initiative has always supported HipHopEd, and has always been there at the big musical event when the music is playing and the students are up on stage, rhyming about science. On February 10, 2017, we went a little further: CTI showed support by additionally attending one of the preliminary guidance meetings. We met with the wonderful teachers who help the kids with their raps and make this whole thing happen! Chris Emdin, one of (our scholar) Edmund Adjapong’s mentors, was on hand to inspire the teachers and volunteers who make it all happen. Of course, Edmund was there to make everything run smoothly and make sure all participants had the support they needed.
