Hampton Institute

HI

Clifton Partk, United States

The Hampton Institute (HI) was founded with the purpose of giving a platform to everyday, working-class people to theorize, comment, analyze and discuss matters that exist outside the confines of their daily lives, yet greatly impact them on a daily basis. First and foremost, as a think tank, the HI seeks to generate ideas and cultivate dialogue. It wants to do this in a way that relates to the interests of the public-at-large by providing working-class analyses which run contrary to the talking heads of corporate-dominated media. It wants to help contribute to the shaping of a new paradigm of collective and critical thinking - one that is based on foundational issues of class, race, gender and privilege. The HI is the opposite of the traditional think tank. The HI is not aligned with or beholden to any political party, or other interest groups of the elite.
