Hiphop Archive & Research Institute

The Hiphop Archive & Research Institute at Harvard University was officially established in 2002. It found its permanent home in the Du Bois Institute January 2008. The Hiphop Archive & Research Institute’s mission is to facilitate and encourage the pursuit of knowledge, art, culture and responsible leadership through Hiphop. We are uncompromising in our commitment to build and support intellectually challenging and innovative scholarship that both reflects the rigor and achievement of performance in Hiphop and transforms our thinking and our lives. These objectives are met through our Website: which provides information about all activities and projects and serves as a resource for those interested in knowing, developing, building, maintaining and representing Hiphop. The Hiphop Archive & Research Institute works with other groups and individuals who support hiphop culture. We also sponsor and facilitate projects, events and numerous other activities at the Hiphop Archive @ The Hutchins Center, Harvard University.
