The History of Hip-Hop

This class traces the creation and evolution of hip-hop from the early 1970s to the present. Specifically, it will chart the growth of a unique youth culture from the streets, parks, and playgrounds of America’s most important city to streets, beaches, pubs, dance halls, and parks across the globe and our own personal lives! We will listen to influential songs, music videos, and create our own lyrics! Also using data from Billboard, we will track movement on the charts and the income of today’s biggest stars. Most importantly, we will build a safe space!

Presenter: Candace Hugee
