The participating panelists will discuss the importance of staying in school, staying out of trouble, and how to pursue a career in the music business, in addition to a short question and answer session.
The event is part of BLSA’s 26th Annual Spring Conference, which is dubbed “The Fierce Urgency of Now: Effecting Change at Home and Across the Globe,” taking place March 13 – March 15. The Conference will feature several notable speakers such as New Orleans Mayor C. Ray Nagin, Donna Brazile, and Bishop Vashti Murphy McKenzie.
The HLS BLSA chapter is the largest BLSA Chapter in the nation. It exists for the support, guidance and direction of Black students in academic, professional and social endeavors. The HHELP was created to combat the devastating effects the School to Prison Pipeline has on inner-city youth. It uses the music industry and hip-hop music to motivate students in school. It was also created to give minority law students the opportunity to pursue careers in the music industry.
