About this Event

The National Museum of African American History and Culture and Smithsonian Folkways are pleased to launch The Smithsonian Anthology of Hip-Hop and Rap. The first-of-its-kind multimedia collection chronicles the growth of the music and culture from the parks of the Bronx to solidifying a reach that spans the globe. On August 17, the anthology’s producer and editor, Dr. Dwandalyn Reece, the Museum's Associate Director of Curatorial Affairs, will moderate an esteemed panel of scholars and contributors to the anthology including, Chuck D, co-founder of Public Enemy; Bill Adler, journalist and critic; Adam Bradley, professor of English and the founding director of the Laboratory for Race & Popular Culture (RAP Lab) at UCLA; Simone Bowden, photographer and author of Time Served on Death Row Records; and Regina Bradley, assistant professor of English and African diaspora studies at Kennesaw State University.
