Hip Hop, now in its fifth decade, continues to influence, intrigue and inspire locally and globally.  The exhibit features photos, artifacts, lyrics and commentary about four elements of Hip Hop:  DJ-ing, MC-ing, Graffiti and Breaking/Breakdancing.  Newark and New Jersey are at the foundation of this lifestyle and continue to produce music, dictate style and deliver artists today.

FREE and open to the public

PNC Foundation is proud to support the Newark Public Library’s Black History Celebration exhibition and public programs.
