Public archiving of Bambaataa vinyl

 

Come watch the sorting and cataloging of Cornell University Library’s Afrika Bambaataa Master of Records vinyl archive at 620 Greenwich St., New York City, July 11 through Aug. 10.

In 2012, Bambaataa was appointed to a three-year term as a visiting scholar at Cornell, where his vinyl collection will reside as part of the library’s Hip Hop Collection, the largest collection on hip-hop culture in the world.

Visitors are encouraged to stop by, hear some great music and see how the cultural artifacts of this important strand of American history are preserved.
