AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO HEALING BLACK BOYS AND MEN THROUGH HIP HOP
Black boys and young men can now be helped with H.Y.P.E., a new program specifically designed for the young warriors of Hip Hop culture. Created by Dr. Adia Winfrey, Healing Young People thru Empowerment (H.Y.P.E.): A Hip-Hop Therapy Program for Black Teenage Boys leverages familiar Hip Hop music, themes, and values to help Black males process through the many challenges they face at home, in their communities, in school, and in their peer relationships, as highlighted by White House initiative, My Brother's Keeper.
