Real Talk: Words in Action

Watch our 2022 Highlights!

For nearly two decades, Torchlight Academy, Inc. has hosted the Real Talk Hip Hop Summit in the soul music Mecca of the world, Macon, GA dedicated to the preservation of hip hop culture and the promotion of entrepreneurship. 

Thanks to generous contributions last year we were able to give over 300 youth the opportunity to experience interactive workshops at the Historic Douglass Theatre in the areas of Knowledge, DJ techniques, Emcee skills, Breakin’, Beatboxing, Graffiti Art, Hip Hop Entrepreneurialism, and Hip Hop Fashion.

Our local and national guest presenters presenters across the nation included: 

Minister Server, Hip Hop Cultural Strategist 
Nick the Quick, DJ for RCA Recording Artist Deante Hitchcock 
Phenom, Founder of Emcee Skool 
King Quic, Funk Lordz Worldwide 
Woke3, Muralist and Studio Artist 
Kosine, Grammy Nominated/Multi-Platinum Producer (Nas, Big Sean, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj) 
Elijah Rutland, Founder of Fix My Sole (NBA, Beats by Dre, Cartoon Network, FAMU)
