Old school, funk, hip hop, r&B, jazz and urban roots..they are all part of The Hip Hop Xpress! The Hip Hop Xpress concept in education was originally designed to function as a modern day Jessup Wagon. The Jessup Wagon was a school on wheels developed by the great agricultural scientist, George Washington Carver, to educate black and white farmer in the early 1900s and later adopted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Morris K. Jessup, a philanthropist from New York, funded the project. The Jessup wagon was a corner stone of Tuskegee Institute’s educational extension services. Both Booker T. Washington and George Washington Carver believed that if farmers wouldn’t come to Tuskegee, then Tuskegee would go to them. Now, fast-forwarding a century, In Search of Hip Hop Xxpress is steeped in that same philosophy. The mobile media lab is used to teach African American youth the importance of archiving their community, and instructing them how to do it.
