Making Hip Hop History

MC Lyte donated her diary, a turntable, records and other assorted memorabilia from hip hop to the Smithsonian Institution. This collection, as well as several other artifacts, became the program “Hip-Hop Won’t Stop: The Beat, the Rhymes, the Life,” which documents the genre’s historical relevance.
