BO$$ UP with A3C's Action Summit

BO$$ UP Panel: Chubbie Baby, James Lindsey, Master P, Kela Taylor,

A3C, which means All Three Coasts, is the nation’s largest hip-hop festival and conference.  It  connects heavy hitters and industry moguls with activists, academics and artists to discuss social justice challenges, learn from community leaders and develop actionable initiatives.
The five-day event in Atlanta is considered to be one of the most important networking events in the industry.

In addition to performances, the event features the A3C Conference, which includes keynote speakers, panels, workshops, demos, interviews, screenings, mixers and exhibits.
A3C partners with Center for Civic Innovation to launch of A3C Action, an initiative that aims to find, support, and invest in new and innovative ideas to use art, music, and hip-hop culture as a vehicle to advance social justice and civic engagement in underserved communities.
