On this episode of #HipHopInnovates with Manny Faces, I spoke about the importance of including hip-hop-related programming in legacy institutions — libraries, museums, and universities, highlighting recent examples from the Newark Public Library, in Newark, New Jersey.
I shared my writeup of one of those events, as well as a full editorial on the topic written after attending another, which I invite everyone to read, and share — It’s vital for getting the institutions that haven’t thought much about hip-hop, to open their eyes to the relevance and brilliance of hip-hop, past, present, and future, and incorporate it into their halls.
Let us know in the comments or on social media about legacy institutions that ARE recognizing hip-hop properly, we’d love to know about them!
These videos will highlight a couple of current news items, and an ‘Artist of the Day,’ someone who is going above and beyond mere entertainment — Plus an occasional commentary here and there, notices about related upcoming conferences and events, and more, all in short clips that I plan to drop every weekday.
For more information, suggestions, or gushing compliments, feel free to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org or via social media.
Thanks for your time.
