Come out to the Schomburg Center for a Hip-Hop History Workshop: DJing with DJ Wiz on Saturday November 23, 2013 from 4 - 6 P.M! During your visit, pick up a copy of Groove Music: the Art and Culture of the Hip-Hop DJ by Mark Katz which can be found in our collection through the Jean Blackwell Hutson General Research and Reference Division. After the workshop you can explore historical perspectives of the turntable. He gives an outline of the history of DJing from its beginnings in the late 1970s in Bronx, New York. Along with his own personal accounts, you can see interviews from practicing DJs about their place in hip-hop, gender and race politics in the world of DJing, and ideas about digital technology in relationship to music. Don’t miss out on this amazing workshop and a chance to read Katz’s incredible book.
