How Can Hip-Hop Benefit Technology? Education? Diversity? Business? Social Justice? EVERYTHING?

Manny Faces helps answer these questions, delivering valuable information and inspiration to audiences at colleges, conferences, or corporations, and on podcasts or video shows. He is an award-winning journalist, independent scholar, and public speaker who founded several acclaimed media outlets including Birthplace Magazine, an online entertainment and lifestyle publication focusing on hip hop music and culture in the NYC-area, and its complimentary live podcast/video show, The NY Hip Hop Report.

In late 2015, Manny founded The Center for Hip-Hop Advocacy (www.hiphopadvocacy.org), a non-profit organization utilizing journalism, original research, and media/public outreach to increase awareness and understanding of hip-hop’s important artistic and cultural contributions.

In 2017, Manny was recruited to produce News Beat (www.usnewsbeat.com), a groundbreaking, multiple award-winning podcast series that melds hard-hitting social justice journalism and expert interviews with music and original hip-hop lyrics crafted by independent hip-hop artists. News Beat has won several Best Podcast awards with prominent journalism organizations.

In 2018, Manny launched another podcast series, Hip-Hop Can Save America! (www.hiphopcansaveamerica.com), highlighting people and organizations utilizing hip-hop music and culture to innovate, inspire, and uplift lives and communities. This acclaimed show appears on the ‘recommended materials’ list at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. 

Manny, who is also an accomplished DJ, producer/remixer, and event host, is an outspoken advocate for hip hop music and culture, and has lectured, moderated, participated in panel discussions, and conducted workshops at universities, organizations, conferences and festivals throughout the world.
