Intersections: Marking Fifty Years of Hip Hop and the WTC
Intersections examines the often-surprising connections between 9/11 and today’s world. From global industries to individual lives, the attacks marked a fundamental shift for many, altering trajectories in ways both expected and unforeseen. These programs explore these shifts and make visible 9/11’s continuing legacy.
Amid one of New York City’s most tumultuous decades, 1973 saw the dedication of the World Trade Center and the birth of Hip Hop. As we look at 9/11’s impact across culture, we mark this twin milestone 50 years later with Dr. MC Debbie D, Hip Hop historian and pioneer MC; Chuck Creekmur, CEO of AllHipHop.com; and Rocky Bucano, Executive Director of the Universal Hip Hop Museum. Together in conversation with Museum Director Clifford Chanin, they reflect on the history of Hip Hop, how the genre has evolved in a post-9/11 world, and how New York City and its ever-changing skyline influenced the artistic movement that now spans the globe.
