Incomplete History Of Hip-Hop

"You are invited to join us to watch four undeniably important films about the roots and growth of Hip-Hop," says Columbia College's Amina Ayo Norman-Hawkins.

Wild Style (1983), Beat Street (1984), Krush Groove (1985), and Fear of a Black Hat (1993). This isn't a complete list of Hip-Hop films by any means . . . Just four great films that offer a window into the youth of one of the most important art forms in history, along with conversations with special guests who help us put the future of Hip-Hop in perspective.

"Each event will also feature performances and video presentations by Columbia College Chicago students."




In Fall 2017, Columbia College began offering a minor in hip-hop studies.

"The Hip-Hop Studies Minor will deepen your connection to hip-hop through a blend of hands-on experiences and thoughtful coursework. Open to Columbia students in any major, the program reflects the interdisciplinary nature of hip-hop culture. It combines course offerings in music, dance, business, art, radio, and cultural studies. You'll also connect with other students and experts in the field through the Hip-Hop Studies Symposium. You'll discuss hip-hop's history and critical issues with local and national practitioners such as DJs, dancers, musicians, producers, and community organizers."
