Hip-Hop Summit Coming To Morgan State University

Maryland Lieutenant

Governor Michael S. Steele will join the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network Chairman

and Def Jam co-founder Russell Simmons, as well as a host of hip-hop executives

and artists at the Maryland Hip-Hop Summit, which is taking place at Morgan State

University on Thursday, April 21, 2005.

Simmons will be joined by

Warner Music Group Executive Vice President and Baltimore native Kevin Liles,

and Reverend Run, discussing the theme, "Creating Legacy Wealth".

“The last installment

of the civil rights movement for blacks and the secret to success for all Americans

[is] financial empowerment,” Simmons told AllHipHop.com. “Get your

money right.”

The one-day conference features

workshops, a Summit Town Hall Meeting, a post reception and after party.

The Financial Literacy workshops

will provide workable tools and solutions for home ownership, credit bank relationships,

credit repair, and lifestyle management.

The event is free, but pre-registration

is strongly suggested and workshop registration is mandatory to attend the Town

Hall meeting.
