It's with great pleasure that we bring in the 11th year of our conference and announce this year's theme: "Re://FRESH". In this new decade, we're bringing it back to the basics. In this new decade of RTSB we are re://imagining the foundations of hip hop and it's impact on our youth.
Today, more than ever we need to re://turn home to the elements that anchor hip hop education. At the same time let's hit re://fresh on the work we do so we can re://energize our students, our communities, and most importantly, ourselves.
