Guide to the HaviKoro Crew Collection, 1983-2010 MS 652
In 1999, two Houston based B-boy dance groups K.O.R.O (Knights of Rhythm Odyssey) and HAVIK (Having a Vicious Indestructible Krew) combined to create HaviKoro.
Their mission is to serve the underprivileged in the U.S. and around the world through their first-hand experience in dealing with life's tough challenges and difficult choices. The group's outreach focuses primarily on at-risk youth, offering positive messages via urban performance and sharing their testimonies and talents. In 2004, HaviKoro partnered with Houston's Association of American Voices and the U.S. State Department to perform in dozens of foreign countries, as the U.S. 'Hiplomats' representing the unique contribution of hip hop to American culture.
HaviKoro has competed in and won top level events around the world winning first place in the U.S. "Out for Fame" best crew contest (2001) and third place in the world "Battle of the Year" (Hannover, Germany, 2001).
The City of Houston honored HaviKoro and their contributions by proclaiming March 4, 2016 "HaviKoro Day."
The HaviKoro Crew Collection contains T-shirts, posters, hand painted shoes, hand painted jacket, documents, oversized posters and banners.
