Since its inception in The Bronx, New York in 1973, hip-hop—the music, the culture and the lifestyle—has become a dominant force that has impacted the globe. Be it in film, fashion, or politics, hip-hop’s undeniable stamp on individual and community expression stems from its diverse, diasporic influences.
Inspired by this diversity, the African American Studies Department and the Hispanic-Serving Institutions Committee will sponsor a library exhibit to jointly celebrate 50 years of hip-hop and Hispanic Heritage Month.
We invite submissions from the City Tech community of creative work (photos, drawings, and other forms of images) that connects or is in conversation with hip-hop in the Latinx community.
Selected works will be on display in the 2023 Hispanic Heritage Month Library Exhibit and on the HSI Committee OpenLab site.
Deadline to submit: July 21
