Event Postponed: Celebrate Black History and Hip Hop

We are sorry to share that after consulting with the venue and event sponsors, we have made the difficult decision to reschedule tomorrow’s Black History Through the Eyes of Hip Hop event for a later date.

Northrop Auditorium and other U of M buildings are closed at this time.




Join us as we celebrate the importance of teaching Black History and 50 years of Hip Hop!

Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) and Black History 365 (BH365) are thrilled to invite you to a unique event celebrating Black History through the vibrant medium of hip hop.

Our talented MPS students will take the stage at Northrop Auditorium to honor this rich heritage with their performances.

Join us live on Tuesday, April 30 at 11 a.m. or tune in to the public livestream to be a part of this special occasion. Doors at 10:30 a.m.
