Harriet Beecher Stowe and Popular Culture
In the 1970s, DJ Kool Herc, a Jamaican born man living in the Bronx, helped spark the birth of a new genre/culture: Hip Hop. Popularized by Black and Brown marginalized populations in the United States, Hip Hop is a genre and culture now known around the world. From its early inception until now, Hip Hop has evolved into a culture and art form with its own Diaspora.
