"This thesis exploration will educate the world on racism towards the Black Community, the color-blindness syndrome (All Lives Matter, I don’t see color), and the racial structure based on skin color, using Hip-Hop as a translative and transformative device in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia, creating a narrative of the black community in the form of a Hip Hop College. This thesis’ story will be reincarnated and placed into the vessel of an architecture. This architecture will explain a narrative of Hip-Hop in the black community. Music has become a second language in the black community. This outcome manifested during the European invasion of Africa and North America. Throughout the stages of history in North America, music in the black community has served as codes, ways of transportation, and most of all, in the bluntest expression, a venting system. As time has progressed venting has been a way to tell a story and the stories have become history. The stories have been reincarnated into multitudes of forms, pushed into vessels of all sorts. The specific form of music I will be dissecting is HipHop, being the largest and most modern form of musical communication."
