The 9/11 Memorial & Museum will host a unique conversation that examines the relationship between Hip-Hop and The World Trade Center. Hip-Hop, as a global culture, started 50 years ago and the World Trade Center was erected the same year of 1973.
“Intersections: Marking 50 Years of Hip Hop and the WTC.” will celebrate the evolution of Hip-Hop over the past five decades and compare and contrast it with the representation of the massive structures.
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from esteemed guests including historian Dr. MC Debbie D, CEO of AllHipHop.com Chuck Creekmur, and executive director of the Universal Hip Hop Museum, Rocky Bucano. The Hip-Hop trio will be joined by Museum Director Clifford Chanin.
Pioneering emcee MC Debbie D said, “I’m excited about sharing my story on a panel with Chuck Creekmur and Rocky Bucano for the first ever 50-year collaboration between the iconic World Trade Center and Hip Hop.”
“I do not think most people understand the profound relationship between the World Trade Center and Hip-Hop culture,” Creekmur said. “But, I believe this panel will offer deep insights into those contrasts and parallels.”
“The panel about the intersection between Hip Hop and the World Trade Center at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum will be thought-provoking,” the UHHM founder stated, “The World Trade Center and Hip Hop’s origin have so much in common but started from different ends of New York City’s economic spectrum.”
The panel discussion will delve into the intertwined history of Hip-Hop and the World Trade Center, both of which emerged in 1973. The speakers will explore how both have continued to shape and influence culture throughout the years.
