For the Culture ~ Celebrating Black History through MusicFebruary 1 - February 29, 2023
All Access Community Development Corporation (AACDC) presents “Hip Hop 50 Bergen,” an exhibit celebrating the 50th anniversary of the genre and its global impact and local origins. Thanks to Sugar Hill Records and its founder Sylvia Robinson, Bergen County is considered the birthplace of Hip Hop's commercial success, monetization, and globalization of the genre.
The exhibit features items and memorabilia from Bergen County's own pioneers, such as the Sugar Hill Gang. These local Hip Hop innovators will also be honored with Congressional certificates and county recognition.
The exhibit is executive produced by AACDC's executive director Randy Glover and bergenPAC’s Sandy Bennett Art Gallery Curator Helene Cohen. The artistic producers of the event are Awesome 2's Teddy Tedd Whiting and Kevin Bonners.
The public is invited to visit the exhibition during regular Box Office hours and to ticket holders prior to shows.
