"The Hip Hop Congress" (HHC) was originally founded as an artist network in 1993 by producer/entrepreneur Real Robinson IV, who formed the first HHC community chapters in Northern & Southern California after meeting artist/activist Shamako Noble in 1997.
Three years later, USC undergrads Jordan Bromley and Ron Gubitz independently founded a college campus activity group and community network also called "Hip Hop Congress". These two HHC entities discovered each other while surfing the web in 2000, and in 2001 they agreed to merge and form the current Hip Hop Congress, Inc. 501c3.
In the decade to follow, Hip Hop Congress birthed over 70 HHC Chapters in communities and campuses nation/worldwide, hosting nine Annual National Conferences in San Jose-CA, Los Angeles-CA, St. Louis-MO, Chicago-IL, Boulder-CO, Athens-OH, Biloxi-MS, Seattle-WA, and Detroit MI; while also inspiring HHC collectives to emerge across Europe and Africa.
These collective gatherings created groundbreaking initiatives in education, the arts, and activism, helping to launch many new careers for its members while forming strategic partnerships with other like-minded organizations.
In 2017, Hip Hop Congress will launch a campaign to establish its first social media platform and digital support structure to help members connect with each other and develop into the globally unifying force needed in communities all over the world.
