The African American Museum is Hosting a Virtual Workshop on Hip Hop Jazz Musicology
The African American Museum in Philadelphia has been hosting a variety of virtual workshops in celebration of the Black History Month. For its fourth and final edition they’ll be hosting Hip-Hop Jazz Musicology February 24th from 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm. This workshop teaches participants about the social, historical, and musical influences on Hip-hop music and how it relates to other genres within African American traditions. Hip-hop Jazz Musicology creates a forum to bridge our collective understanding of how Hip-hop relates to its predecessors. Each participant contributes to the workshop and is able to walk away enjoying a deeper connection to the story, music, and history that is the African American experience.
All of the Black History Month Virtual Workshop Series presented this month were a part of the Museum’s new and existing workshops included in their Learning Through the Arts (LTTA) program. Perfect for ages 12 and up, AAMP’s Learning through the Arts program offers participants an opportunity to interact with artists and historians, express their ideas through lively discussions and participation, and gain cultural literacy as well as an important communication and critical thinking skills.
