History MEETS Hip Hop

History MEETS Hip Hop

Curator

History MEETS Hip-Hop By Syreeta Gates (HMHH) is a multi-media, multi-generational conversation about history’s impact in hip-hop and vice versa.  History MEETS Hip-Hop "kicks some brand new flava in your ear," highlighting parallels between Carter G Woodson, Shawn "Jay Z" Carter, Betty Carter, Bunchy Carter & Dwayne "Lil Wayne" Carter. It bridges movements and eras and shows how each preceding cultural signifier is reflected, transformed, and re-instituted through hip-hop.
