Behind the Beat: African American Music

Thursday, January 26, 2017 to Tuesday, February 28, 2017
Children's Room Small Display
An informative exhibit curated by the African American Museum of Iowa staff detailing the history of hip hop. Music tells a story deeper than the evolution of rhythmic patterns and vocal styles. It creates a soundtrack for our past. Words, in print or online, are usually our go-to for historical research. Yet in music, we can hear and feel history through lyrics, melodies, harmonies, and rhythms.
