From its beginning, hip hop has inspired many artisitic, educational, and social movements in the United States and around the world. The Hip Hop Archive strives to be a resource for anyone interested in learning about and discussing these movements and their impact on the future. The Archive supports this goal by inviting students, hip hop scholars, professors and other commnity members to come together and analyze hip hop from their own diverse points of view and background
Past events have included "Hiphop Worldwide: More Than a Nation", a roundtable discussion on hip hop as a vehicle for communication and social development throughtout the world and "All Eyez on Me: Tupac Shakur and the Search for a Modern Folk Hero", a symposium that addressed the role of Tupac Shaur as a central figure in Hiphop youth culture and the resulting criticism of national and global leadership. Future events include a Lyrical Workout Session and an Author Meets The Critics Series featuring guests Jamaica Kincaid, Emmett Price, Cheryl Keyes, and more.
The Hip Hop Archive will be hosting more discussions, panels, and meetings througout the year so keep a look out!
