Event description

Description

The Schomburg's Junior Scholars Program and Hip Hop History Project's first installment of “Going Way Back” will feature Grammy award-winning rapper Big Daddy Kane. The event will celebrate the legacy of hip-hop culture with artists that introduced the genre to the masses and offer a rare opportunity to fresh insight into to the origins of Hip Hop music. Big Daddy Kane will kick-off the 30th-anniversary celebration of his debut album "Long Live The Kane." He'll discuss Afro-masculinity and his novel and influential “Dark Gable” persona. This discussion is produced by the Schomburg Center Junior Scholars Program and Billboard magazine’s first rap editor Havelock Nelson.

Youth ages 13-19 have priority seating.
