Afrika Bambaataa Appointed Visiting Scholar At Cornell University

By - Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

{image-1} Cornell University’s library boasts the largest national archive on hip-hop culture and features thousands of recordings, flyers, photographs and other artifacts outlining its birth in South Bronx. Now the University has just acquired a living legend on campus. Hip-hop forefather Afrika Bambaataa can officially add a new line to his impressive résumé: visiting scholar. That’s exactly the title he’s taking on at Cornell University, where he’ll begin his three-year term in November. Each year, he’ll visit the Ithaca, New York campus for several days, during which he’ll meet with student groups, speak to classes, and, of course, perform. Source: Complex
