Source360 festival trains, inspires youth

- Kids in Brooklyn are using their love of music and technology to try and make the world a better place. Hip hop is joining forces with education and social justice. It is all about using hip hop to touch young people and make a difference, according to those on the front line.

Now in its fourth year, Source360 is a festival and conference in Downtown Brooklyn led by people from several industries, including Fox 5's own Lisa Evers.

Panel discussions are held on issues like music, tech and making money but also on community-police relationships.

The goal of the four-day event is to expose young people to the future of tech, including coding, using a language they already know: hip hop music.

The event features some young and upcoming artists but also highlight the contributions people have made to the culture over the years, like Deborah Lee and Doug E. Fresh

For any kids in grades 6 to 12, this was the place to be.
