The Atlanta Hip-Hop Summit will take place at the Atlanta University Center on the grounds of the historic black college, Morris Brown College, in its John Lewis Gymnasium located at 643 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, Atlanta, Ga. The Atlanta University Center includes Morehouse College, Spelman College, Clark Atlanta University, Morris Brown College and the Interdenominational Theological Center.

HSAN's partners are Chrysler Financial, the title sponsor, and Anheuser- Busch, Inc., the presenting sponsor. The Hip-Hop Summit on Financial Empowerment's "Get Your Money Right" National Tour, now in its second successful year, brings together the powerful combination of hip-hop stars and Chrysler Financial experts to speak to students and community members about the importance of financial literacy.

The topics to be covered include the basics of banking, home ownership, repairing bad credit and understanding credit scores, entrepreneurship, vehicle financing and more. The "Get Your Money Right" national tour includes stops in three additional cities, including September 30 in Los Angeles; October 14 in Dallas; and October 28 in Toronto, Canada.

The Hip-Hop Summit on Financial Empowerment is a grassroots effort to help engage young people in discussions about the importance of personal finance. "Joining with Jermaine Dupri and Ludacris to host the Atlanta Hip-Hop Summit is a special blessing," emphasized Russell Simmons. "This city is known for its great contributions to hip-hop, as well as being a center for social change in our nation and world. 'Get Your Money Right' is an opportunity for the core of our demographic -- 18-35 year olds -- to gain invaluable information on financial empowerment."

"With rising tuition costs, the cost of books, gasoline, etc. young people can't afford not to have financial know-how," said William F. Jones Jr., Vice President - Chrysler Financial. "Chrysler Financial's expert financial panelists join with Russell Simmons and Dr. Chavis in our collaborative mission to help attendees effectively manage their personal financial situations by providing them with real life examples and a financial workbook to support them in making the right choices."

"We will celebrate the evolution of hip-hop in Atlanta and throughout the South, as well as transmit life-transforming real stories about wealth building and entrepreneurship," declared Dr. Chavis.

"I'm a firm supporter of the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network," exclaimed Ludacris. "I'm just trying to do my part in giving back and educating our youth on important issues in the community."

"I want to give back to the kids who support my movement," stated Young Jeezy. "So it is important to me to work with an icon such as Russell Simmons and his Hip-Hop Summit Action Network to promote financial literacy at the Atlanta Hip-Hop Summit."

"Hip-hop transcends cultural borders and we are excited to have Chingo Bling representing the Latino community at the Atlanta Hip-Hop Summit on Financial Empowerment," affirmed Jasmin Franjul, Director, Artist and Diversity Relations, HSAN. "The Hip-Hop Summit Action Network embraces the Atlanta Latino community and looks forward to bringing everyone together on September 16 to 'Get Your Money Right.'"
