Happy Anniversary Hip Hop
For many that don’t know, Hip Hop was born in the Bronx Nov 12, 1973, by the Zulu Nation. Afrika Bambaataa of the hip hop collective Zulu Nation outlined the pillars of hip hop culture, coining the terms: “rapping” (also called an MC), a rhythmic vocal rhyming style (orality); DJing (and turntablism), which is making music with record players and DJ mixers (aural/sound and music creation); b-boying/b-girling/breakdancing (movement/dance); and graffiti.
Hip hop has made a considerable social impact since its inception in the 1970s. “Hip hop has also become relevant to the field of education because of its implications for understanding language, learning, identity, and curriculum.”
