Harlem Hip-Hop Tours (H3 Tours) offers school field trips that provide students with a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the rich cultural history of Harlem and New York City's hip-hop industry.
By providing fun field trips that motivate and inspire students and teachers alike, H3 Tours helps foster a deeper understanding of Black culture and history among young people. Their trips take students on historical tours that truly bring alive the Harlem Renaissance and Hip-Hop roots, at places such as the Cotton Club, Apollo Theater, Hotel Theresa, Abyssinian Baptist Church, Sugar Hill, and Rucker's Park. In addition, students can visit studios where they learn hip hop dance techniques or take DJ scratch lessons - activities that reinforce skills such as coordination, teamwork, and listening comprehension while providing a fun and unique experience.
H3 Tours' field trips also provide students the opportunity to visit Columbia University, where they learn about the history of the university as well as information about its historical and contemporary graduates. The tours are led by current students of the school, who inform tour groups about social and academic life, encouraging them to pursue higher education.
Harlem Hip-Hop Tours was founded by two Columbia Business School graduates and residents of New York City, Adrienne Smith and Shannon White, who recognized that in addition to offering fun tours, their company could provide quality field trips for students, an important facet of education that fosters socialization and citizenship skills as well as encouraging good behavior.
Harlem Hip-Hop Tours operates Monday through Saturday, year-round. Tour packages start at $15/person and can be customized to suit any school's curricular or financial needs. For more information please visit http://www.h3tours.com or call 1-800-655-2091.
