This year in-conjunction with The Reporter Newspaper, we gave out AkronHiphop Community Awards to those movers and shakers that made a positive and consistent impact on our community. Also, we did a ceremony for social media regarding the awards. We thought that doing the ceremony for social media would be a great way to get the word out to those nominated and to those that won.
Our speakers for the evening showed and proved why they're considered some of the best brothers to talk about our unique history, plight and future. Big ups to Mr. Prophecy, Dennis Wilson, Russ Neal and Min. Stephen Muhammad for a job well done. I really appreciated you brothers for taking the time to celebrate with us this year.
In-closing, I wanna thank Char Johnson, Yvette Harris, Joi Wilson, Jamie Cole and Maurice Thomas for helping with this year's Extravaganza. Please check out the video of our award ceremony from this year's event sponsored again by The Reporter Newspaper. Until next time, have some fun and get something done.

2018 Water Campaign
Each year (during the summer months) we take up donations with the promise to furnish the city's various Pee Wee football organizations with much-needed water. This year we will only focus on the month of August to do what we can this time around. We ask that you donate $5.00 via our cash app (which is $HiramAkeem) or just give me a call at (330) 937-2632 and we can set up a time to connect. Thank you in advance for your support and generosity.

Community Organize To Send Inner-City Youth To See Black Panther Movie
We here at AkronHipHop.com is all about painting positive images of our people everyday. We feel that it is our job to create a platform where our voices are heard and our presence can be seen and felt. It's our responsibility and pleasure to send children from our community to see the great film Black Panther. This powerful film is history being made all over the world. We believe that the impact of seeing our people as kings and queens (battling the forces of evil) will positively impact the lives of these children as well as entertain them.
This film celebrates our culture in all its beauty and glory. Movie goers will also become familiar with our African culture through costumes, characters and location. So we decided to send them to the movies to take part in this most momentous occasion. We have everyday people in our community that has partnered with us (in sponsoring this event) by giving monetary donations to purchase tickets. We are all about painting positive images of our people in everything we do. From our Feed The Hungry Campaign to our Water Campaign, we pull help, participation and sponsorship from our own community. We believe in being visible in all aspects in community building. In doing so, it is our hope that the community at large will see our efforts and simply become inspired.
During this promotion/outreach program we will be using many different social media platforms to promote this effort. All the children have to do is have their parents help them send us a video of them giving us a simple Black History fact to qualify them to receive tickets to see this great film. So as soon as you see a post regarding this promotion, you should post your child's video in the comment section on that particular social media platform. Keep in mind, this promotion is designed to get our youth in conversation about our glorious history. We thank you for your participation in this positive effort.
The Brothers To Brothers Organization
Every year during the summer season we roll out possibly our most important program called The Water For The Homeless Movement. In detail, Once every month during the summer season we hit the streets with hundreds of bottled water to give away to the needy. We understand that every year homeless people and the elderly die from complications of dehydration. We feel something this basic and essential for our survival shouldn't be hard to obtain. We also believe that water is gods free gift to man. With that being said: we pride ourselves by continuing that original purpose and theme. If you are interested about helping out in-regards to this movement please feel free to contact us.
