The Hip Hop Hall of Fame and Museum is scheduled to open in New York City, in the heart of Harlem: 125th street later in this year.
The complex will include a “retail gift shop, restaurant, concert lounge, sports bar, offices, TV studios, offices and house the Hip Hop Arts and Media Academy.”
The museum will primary focus on education. Per Dove entertainment, “Students will be trained by industry professionals with special celebrity guest speakers, and graduate with their very own online e-commerce store teaching valuable skills, entrepreneurship, job creation and business management. All classes will include a ‘Life-Skills Module’ teaching young people about personal development, family and professional values and etiquette, college prep, career prep, financial literacy, home-ownership and entrepreneurship. Classes will range from 6-10 weeks and be in-conjunction with our Harlem Business, Community, Arts, Cultural, Media, and Educational Program Partners.”
Classes in fashion design and multimedia broadcasting will also be offered.
With a lot of creative and business programs being closed in schools, I think its pretty dope for this to be offered to the youth.
Once a date has been confirmed of when the museum will open, I will post the information here 🙂
