Throughout 2023, NYC’s public libraries will be celebrating 50 years since the creation of hip-hop with a robust slate of programs throughout the spring and summer. Working together with Queens Public Library and the Brooklyn Public Library, NYPL is focusing on hip hop’s origins within New York City and its rich legacy of art, culture, and music that spreads across the nation and around the world.

This partnership was made possible in part by the Institution of Museum and Library Services.
