Valerie Thomas
Founder of Quote The Culture


Valerie is an education blogger, consultant and also the founder of a popular blog, Teach Them Hope. Valerie, an adjunct professor for over 12 years, worked music and specifically hip hop into each of her courses. 


She believes that paying homage to the ancestors is the highest form of praise. Most of the journals in her series, HipHopIsms are nods to the ancestors of both literature and music.

HipHopIsms are phrases from songs, movies, memes, or Black authors that have inspired the culture. A few of the journals include positive affirmations for daily meditation.


By exploring this form of popular culture, Valerie feels that this line of journals will inspire positive conversations and encourage more people to “Quote the Culture”.
