On Saturday, November 14th, D.C. Hip-Hop nonprofit, Words Beats & Life Inc., will host the 10th Anniversary of Bum Rush the Boards Hip-Hop chess tournament at the Columbia Heights Recreation Center from 10am-4pm.

Words Beats & Life, Inc. throws STEM on the wall, graffitis in an “A,” knocks negative mainstream stereotypes of Hip-Hop out of the way, and bridges the gap between Hip-Hop culture and education. With free workshops like the physics of breakdancing and the sound engineering behind Hip-Hop production, WBL Inc. is focused on its mission of being unapologetic advocates of Hip-Hop, proving the necessity and presence of intellect within the culture.

This is critical to the millions of youth who aspire to live Hip-Hop – critical to those presented with and often represented by a repetitive and frequently destructive image of Hip-Hop culture. Words Beats & Life wants youth to be so proud of and confident in their intellect so that their minds become their weapon of choice.

Registration for a full day of competition is only $10 for young kings and queens of all skill levels. Those supporting or just passing by can also enjoy the food, workshops, and an all-around fun-filled afternoon for free. Join us on the 14th to learn what the #ScienceofDope is really about.
