Intersections examines the often-surprising connections between 9/11 and today’s world. From global industries to individual lives, the attacks sparked a fundamental shift for many, altering trajectories in ways both expected and unforeseen. Our public programs explore these diverse shifts and lend visibility to the continuing legacy of 9/11. Amid one of New York City’s most tumultuous decades, 1973 saw both the dedication of the World Trade Center and the birth of Hip Hop. As we look at 9/11’s impact across culture, we mark this twin milestone 50 years later with Dr. MC Debbie D, Hip Hop historian and pioneer MC; Chuck Creekmur, CEO of AllHipHop.com; and Rocky Bucano, Executive Director of the Universal Hip Hop Museum.Together in conversation with Museum Director Clifford Chanin, they reflect on the history of Hip Hop, the evolution of the genre in a post-9/11 world, and how New York City and its ever-changing skyline influenced the artistic movement that now spans the globe.
