Event Details

Hip-Hop is a place where politics, fashion, music, art and all culture all intersect. Wes Jackson, Founder and Executive Director of the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival and President of Brooklyn Bodega, hosts this series, TOLD IT FIRST HAND, where he sits down with artists, executives, writers and entrepreneurs who work behind the scenes and ‘above the line’ in Hip-Hop.

TOLD IT FIRST HAND kicks off at Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) in downtown Brooklyn with  Buckshot and Evil D of the legendary group Black Moon. They will sit down to talk about the 20th Anniversary of their debut album, 'Enta Da Stage', the art of rhyme, the art of production, re-establishing Brooklyn as a cultural hub, The Boot Camp Clik, making Timberland cool, and more.

How have these two artists been able to survive together and separately over two decades that has seen most of the contemporaries fall by the wayside? Join the conversation on November 21st!

Brooklyn Historical Society

Founded in 1863, Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) functions as a library, museum, and urban education center dedicated to the people of Brooklyn, providing opportunities for civic dialogue and thoughtful engagement. Each year, 70,000 students and teachers use our innovative programs and resources to learn about American History and scholars conduct important academic research in our Library and Archives. Through partnerships with government and community groups, BHS reaches communities throughout New York City, serving as a hub for information and ideas about Brooklyn and its complex history.

Housed in a magnificent Landmark Building in Brooklyn Heights, designed by George Post in 1878, BHS maintains an important collection of historical manuscripts, books, photographs, maps, paintings, objects, and ephemera dating back to the 17th century. BHS is a long-standing yet modern institution in both outlook and action. We are Brooklyn’s preeminent history center, responsible for preserving and presenting Brooklyn’s history; our collection continues to grow through the acquisition of contemporary and historical works of art, photographs, documents, books, and oral histories.
