2023 marks the 50th anniversary of the birth of hip-hop, and the beginning of a sonic, cultural and socio-political revolution that changed the U.S. and the world. To commemorate the anniversary, Brooklyn Public Library will present NIGHT IN THE LIBRARY: THE PHILOSOPHY OF HIP-HOP on Saturday, June 17, from 7 pm - 2 am at Central Library.
Join us for this FREE event that will take over the entire Central Library building to celebrate hip-hop culture past, present and future, with keynote addresses, live DJs, film screenings, discussions, debates and contemplative engagements. BPL invites you to celebrate hip-hop and spend a NIGHT IN THE LIBRARY. Entrance is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
NIGHT IN THE LIBRARY is an annual event that explores philosophy in unexpected and provocative ways, focusing on a different and exciting subject area each year.
SATURDAY, JUNE 17, 7 PM - SUNDAY, JUNE 18, 2 AM (EST)
Co-curated by LeBrandon Smith and Kelly Harrison of Really Just Hip-Hop. The Dilemma Series is curated by April R. Silver, founder of AKILA WORKSONGS.
