Attendees are advised to enter through the Denker Avenue gate, to parking lot and structure #8 and #13. Parking is free throughout the day as well as entrance to the expo. ABOUT "A HIP HOP STATE OF MIND" Are Strippers, Drugs, and Money keeping Hip Hop alive? Or, does Hip Hop continue to survive due to its ability to inspire, motivate, and passionately serve as a voice for its fans worldwide? Has Hip Hop been over commercialized? Has its message been lost in all the money it generates? Are there smaller genres of Hip Hop that still embody the true nature of the musical movement? Is Hip Hop truly an expression of freedom of speech for a generation?

From NWA and censorship to Common and Fox News, for a number of decades Hip Hop has taken on more than its fair share of criticism. Yet, after 40 years since its creation, a plethora of questions still remain. In order to answer some of the most complex questions about Hip Hop, Dr. Niama T. Malachi orchestrated a dynamic study that would take her from the streets of Bronx, NY, where Hip Hop originated, to Hip Hop in its current most active form. She submerged herself in the Hip Hop culture by meeting with artists, video models, executives, pioneers, and members of the culture. She attended numerous video shoots, concerts, parties, cultural events, tours, and lectures; even once bravely taking on the role of a video model herself! During the study, Dr. Malachi ingeniously employed social psychological theory to evaluate the state of Hip Hop and its impact on the Black Community. "

A Hip Hop State of Mind" is a creatively crafted manuscript that details her astonishing journey through Hip Hop. It gives readers an in depth look at the honest nature of the Hip Hop culture, while illuminating ways that Hip Hop can be used as a catalyst for positive social change.

The truth about Gizelle and Jamal Bryant's Divorce

All season long cast mates have been commenting on the nerve Gizelle Bryant has to be a mean girl to newcomer Monique Samuels on Season 2 of the "Real Housewives of Potomac,"  especially considering her failed marriage with a prominent Baltimore Pastor Jamal Harrison Bryant.  Bryant was accused of infidelity. Gizelle has not denied that her ex was a serial cheater. Continuing to use her married name, she apparently has nothing to hide, but acts as if she has forgotten her struggles while trying to reinvent herself. 

From the moment they met, Gizelle treated Monique like she was beneath her, having a contrary opinion about almost everything the wealthy young mother of two said. During the recent cast reunion, fed up with Gizelle's criticism, Monique the wife of retired NFL player Chris Samuels, told Giselle at least she does not have to rely on the tithes of church members.  While Gizelle has a new make up line, she has never mentioned having another job on the show.
