The City was bankrupt and schools lacked adequate funding and maintenance. The Black Panthers and the Young Lords, both political organizations, helped the community through breakfast programs, garbage removal, and running newspaper operations.
The Black Studies movement laid out a new time and territory, one of contestation and new knowledge, in the United States Academy.

Gardner describes seven types of intelligences: verbal-linguistic and logical mathematical, visual-spatial intelligence, bodily- kinesthetic, musical-rhythmic, and two forms of personal intelligence — intrapersonal and interpersonal Gardner , 7.

Hip-Hop education practitioners use media as a three-prong instrument: media for critical literacy, media production for a two-way communication, and media as a bridge. Media for critical literacy is the first phase to understanding the power of media and how it manipulates our daily lives.
Media literacy is distinct because it is simply the ability to analyze, evaluate and comprehend the devices to create communication. On the other hand, media production is the development and responses to messages. Media as a bridge is, therefore, the connection to past, present and the future of history through archives and documentation Goodman ; Hill and Vasudevan Hip-Hop pedagogy takes on many forms of practice.
