The efforts of Okoa Mtaa (save the streets) & the grassroots work they are doing in Tanzania is important. Through SUA (Saving Underground Artists) they promote the revolutionary potential of hip hop culture to educate, transform, & mobilize. They are a group of dedicated artists and activists working to educate youth through hip hop culture, trying to counter the impact of pop culture, which actively fights against youth empowerment.
I went to their event in Arusha earlier this year and continue to be impressed with their work. www.facebook.com/suatanzania #Back2Mwanza
