Members of the Boston and Massachusetts hip-hop communities are invited to join Boston Public Library and UMass Boston on Saturday, May 19, at 11 a.m. for the “Show ‘Em Whatcha Got” Mass. Memories Road Show: Hip-Hop Edition digitization event during the 20th annual Hip Hop Appreciation Week.

Attendees are welcome to bring pictures, recordings, or memorabilia to be added to UMass Boston Healey Library’s Massachusetts Hip-Hop Archive. Staff will scan photos, copy digital images, and record stories and make arrangements to copy recordings. Everything will be returned to individuals.

This event is made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities Common Heritage program in support of a larger project called “Local Rappers, DJs, B-Boys, and Graff: Documenting the Massachusetts Hip-Hop Community from the 1970s to the Present.”
