Inside the Hip Hop School of Arts

Update: Unfortunately the Hip Hop School of Arts in Pomona had to close its doors this summer for lack of funding. But Julio "Lil' Cesar" Rivas says he will reopen the project in the future and continue to improve the lives of young people through Hip Hop culture.

Nick Hardcastle visits the Hip Hop School of Arts, a nonprofit performing arts center in the heart of Pomona, California. Founded by B-boy legend Lil' Cesar, the program aims to teach the broad scope of hip hop culture from breakdancing to rapping to merchandising. The Hip Hop School of Arts launched in 2013 and has already made a positive impact on its students and the surrounding community, but is in need of more financial support to keep its doors open.

Featuring Interviews With:

  • Julio "Lil' Cesar" Rivas, founder/executive director, Hip Hop School of Arts
  • Daniel Brown, instructor
  • Kassandra Ramirez, student
  • Mayor Elliot Rothman, City of Pomona
