Hip Hop Gets Its Due In Oakland

Our photos from the popular RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom exhibit at the Oakland Museum of California.


Spanning a narrative of over 50 years, the shows how Hip-Hop is one of the most influential movements in the history of mankind.




Through photography, video, art, music, dance, fashion, and interactive gallery features, the exhibit shows how Hip-Hop provided a platform for creative self-expression, activism, positive social change, youth development, entrepreneurialism, and education.


More important, it casts a spotlight on how the Oakland and San Francisco Bay Area’s influence the Hip-Hop culture.
