Hip-hop bringing positive change to Anchorage

Hip hop is more than just music and dance. It’s a culture. And for some people in Alaska it’s a way to bring positive change to the community. Today, we are joined by George Martinez with Global Block. His organization coordinated a hip-hop youth summit earlier this year and is opening an urban arts center in the Northway Mall in Anchorage.  Also joining us is Gabe Gray-Harvey, co-owner of Underground Dance Studio.
