Professor Marcyliena Morgan first floated the idea of establishing a hip-hop archive at Harvard University more than a decade ago.
After some tumultuous years in transition, the Hiphop Archive is firmly settled back at Harvard.
Harvard is a much more natural fit than some assume, said Morgan. “Hip-hop has an incredible ego, and so does Harvard.”
Professor Marcyliena Morgan taught a class at Harvard University’s Hiphop Archive.
Theodore Miller is a teaching assistant.
The archive includes books, magazines, recordings, and ephemera that enhance the study of hip-hop.
Anna Neumann told the class she chose the name “DJ Illegal.” She sits near a wall that was tagged by visitors to the archive.
