Summary
This collection consists of primary source resource materials such as oral histories with journalist Harry Allen and the Awesome 2 (Teddy Tedd, and Special K); promotional materials for "Echo Park", Hip-Hop Nation: Roots, Rhymes and Rage, and Hip Hop Appreciation Week. There is also information about the Zulu Nation and KRS-One’s Temple of Hiphop; a complete run of the "International Graffiti Times"; the Kid n Play comic series; and various journals, magazines, newspapers, articles, books, theses, and dissertations on hip-hop from various collectors, including James G. Spady and James Top.
Launched around 2014, the Schomburg Center's Hip-Hop Archive Project aimed to engage activists, writers, collectors, and scholars in documenting the early movement from the mid-1970s. Schomburg Center staff Steven Fullwood and Lela Sowell led the effort. It is unclear when the Project ended.
