The historic exhibit “Hip Hop: Respect Style Wisdom” close this Saturday August 12th at the Oakland Museum of California, and it’s an amazing display of history central to the Bay Area and beyond.   

 

From the OMCA page

Hip-Hop is one of the widest reaching cultural and social movements of the last 50 years. Discover the under-recognized story of how Hip-Hop changed the world, starting from its roots on the streets before rap, DJing, graffiti, breakin’ (breakdancing), and street fashion launched into mainstream popular culture. Through photography, video, art, music, dance, fashion, and interactive gallery features, explore how Hip-Hop provides a platform for creative self-expression, activism, positive social change, youth development, entrepreneurialism, and education. Created in collaboration with and participation from numerous members of the Hip-Hop community, RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom tells a fresh story of the evolution of this global phenomenon, and includes a spotlight on Oakland and the San Francisco Bay Area’s influence on Hip-Hop culture.

 

The exhibit has been featured in everything from music publications like Vibe, and The Source to The Smithsonian and had a great feature on PBS News Hour.

 

I had the pleasure of taking photos for the opening event, and witnessing some of the greatest hip hop genius all in one place.  If you haven’t had a chance to see this historic exhibit at the Oakland Museum yet, you have a few more days and I can’t recommend it enough!
