Origins of Hip-Hop

Since its inception in 2012, this all-ages annual event brings lovers of Hip-Hop culture together for an entertaining yet educational experience at a beautiful venue on the shores of Lake Michigan in Racine, WI. The goal of Origins of Hip-Hop is to highlight and explore the four major elements of Hip-Hop culture: breakdancing, graffiti, DJing, and MCing. Over a dozen professional practitioners gather to showcase these elements, discuss their history, and provide a platform for people to participate.
