They Reminisce 2023 takes a look at Hip Hop’s past through three distinct eras of dance, music, fashion and culture. Join us as we take a look at how Hip Hop was created and influenced over the last 50 years! Hip Hop’s story begins in the Bronx in 1963 when completion of The Cross-Bronx Expressway cuts the Bronx off from the rest of New York. This brings swift decline and ushers in an era of arson and gang violence. It’s during this time, in 1967, that Clive Campbell moves to the Bronx and begins to DJ.

Hip Hop culture was birthed by Black and Latino communities as a response to the social and economic oppression they were feeling at the time. And while they were laying the foundations of Hip Hop, Black Gay and Trans communities were pioneering new sounds and dances of their own. It’s during this time in the 60’s and 70 that dances like Punking and House begin to take shape.

 

The Journey Continues
