Mass Transit: The Movement of People Thru Sound - Hip-Hop for Sudanese Relief

A benefit for relief in the Sudan.

The National Hip-Hop Political Convention is planning a benefit concert
to
address the genocide occurring in Sudan, Africa. The concert, "Mass
Transit:
The Movement of People Thru Sound" will be held during the Magic
Fashion
Convention on August 29th at the University of Las Vegas campus.

The crisis in Sudan has escalated to the point of genocide, and the
NHHPC
believes something must be done to raise awareness around this issue.
This
will be the group's first time taking on a project like this, and, to
their
knowledge, a first time by a Hip-Hop organization to address an
international issue outside of the war in Iraq.

To put this event on, the NHHPC has partnered with Phi Beta Sigma (Pi
Zeta
Chapter) and Africare (the oldest African American charity organization
to Africa.)

Artists who have donated performances will include:
Asheru
Coach D
Dead Prez
Deux Process
Goapele
Immortal Technique
Jean Grae
LiveSoul
Oddisee
One Be Lo
The Chapter
Wordsworth

Also slated to support this event are Congresswoman Barbera Lee,
TransAfrica
Forum, The City of Las Vegas (Larry Weekly), Myspace.com, Mixwell
Clothing,
Motif Clothing, Hiphopsite.com, Hiphopdx.com, and others.

The NHHPC is committed to making this event a success, in order to
provide
support and relief to the victims of the Sudanese conflict. The
committee is
actively seeking more sponsorship, endorsements, and volunteer support
from
businesses and individuals across the country. To learn more about this
effort, and how your business can partner, please contact:
