“A Philip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum (APRPPM) has launched a novel pilot program aimed at combating violence among youth through the vehicle of the creative arts. Titled, “Museum 44; Where Hip Hop Meets History” and named in honor of 44th president, Barack Obama. The program is a vehicle where young people that have been exposed to violence can come together in a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment. The objective is to allow youth to express themselves and deal with issues in their community at their level of understanding and communication.”
