RAPPER JAY-Z GIVES BACK WITH HIS 2014 SHAWN CARTER FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

– The deadline to apply is April 30th. –

Shawn Carter Foundation Scholarship

Brooklyn, NY (BlackNews.com) — The Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation has announced that they are now accepting applications for their 2014 scholarship program. The foundation, established by rapper Jay-Z and his mom Gloria Carter, aims to enhance the lives of young people.

The foundation is unique because it offers scholarships to single mothers, children who attend alternative schools, students who have earned only a GED, students with grade point averages of 2.0, and students who have previously been incarcerated, etc. The students, however, must demonstrate a strong desire to pursue higher education.

In 2013, 176 scholarship recipients were selected and 70% of them had household incomes below $40,000. In addition, 74% of them came from single parent homes, and 58% are first-generation college students. Read more…

5 Questions With….. Kwan Foye

December 6, 2013 1 comment

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us1. You’ve sold over 500,000 books over the years. What drives you to write and what would be a good solid number of books sold that would make you feel like you’ve hit the pinnacle?

What drives me is not wanting to go back to what I came from. I have a legit career doing something that I absolutely love. The driving force behind all this is my mother. She died before any of her work could be published and I just picked up the torch. As far as numbers, it’s a blessing to have sold so many books but I don’t think I’ll ever feel like I’ve hit the pinnacle. I will never be complacent or feel like I’ve made it. I don’t feel like I have a ceiling or cap.
 
2. You’ve just released your latest, ‘Animal II: The Omen’, what is the book about and what made you decide to collaborate with Cash Money Content?
 
The Animal Saga is a spin off from the Hood Rat series. He was a character who stood out and whose voice spoke loudest to me so I kept building on his storyline. My readers love him and #TEAMANIMAL has become the biggest movement in this genre that I’ve ever seen. I felt like CMC was a good fit because Baby and Slim come from what I come from and they understand the demographic a bit better than most. It’s been a great working relationship because they trust me to do what I do without looking over my shoulder or suggesting one direction or another. I’m hands on with the packaging of my stories (covers, editors, etc) and the push. I’ve been doing this for eleven years so I have my finger on the pulse of my readers. Read more…

February 6, 2013, New York City—Video Music Box (VMB) founder and Hip-Hop Icon Uncle Ralph McDaniels held his kickoff event at the Schomburg to celebrate the 30-year anniversary of Video Music Box.  The event was coordinated and hosted by Martha Diaz (The Schomburg Center’s Resident Hip-Hop Scholar), Director Dr. Khalil Muhammad and Ralph McDaniels (Video Music Box’s Creator).  February 2013 is the 87th annual celebration of Black History Month, which has evolved over time to acknowledge the accomplishments, contributions and sacrifices of African-Americans and other African Diasporas.  2013 is also the 40th Anniversary of Hip-Hop’s birth.  One of the priorities in developing VMB30’s year long schedule of activities, is to acknowledge, celebrate and honor this auspicious occasion.

 

Events will be taking place throughout the year in New York and the Tri-State area.  Uncle Ralph has been in the game for over 30 years and has been an important part of Hip-Hop Culture.  Back in the days, when there was no MTV or BET, Video Music Box was the only vehicle available to promote Hip-Hop music and culture.  The biggest stars in Hip-Hop and R&B have benefited from the success of VMB.  Mr. McDaniels has also produced over 400 music videos, is an on-air personality for Hot 97 Radio, and has been involved with several feature films.  His commitment to the community, addressing such issues as poverty, education, voter registration, obesity, and gun and gang violence has always been a part of what VMB is all about.  Read more…
