Description

ELPL is looking forward to hosting the Black History 101 Mobile Museum.  

Founded by Dr. Khalid el-Hakim, the Black History 101 Mobile Museum is an award winning collection of over 10,000 original artifacts of Black memorabilia dating from the trans-Atlantic slave trade era to hip-hop culture. Dr. el-Hakim has been called the "Schomburg of the Hip-Hop generation" because of his passionate commitment to carry on the rich tradition of the Black Museum Movement. As the nation's premiere Black history traveling exhibit, the Black History 101 Mobile Museum has visited 41 states sharing "ourstory" at over 1000 institutions reaching tens of thousands of visitors in diverse spaces including colleges, K-12 schools, corporations, conferences, libraries, museums, festivals, religious institutions, and cultural events.

The museum will be open from 10am-3pm, and will feature a talk "Hip Hop at 50" (its the 50th anniversary of hip hop culture) with Dr. el-Hakim at noon.
