In celebration of the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, we are excited to announce a specially curated hip-hop playlist by the staff of the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. Hip-hop is not just a genre of music; it’s a cultural movement that has inspired change and promoted inclusivity, aligning perfectly with our mission.

Our playlist features a selection of iconic tracks from hip-hop’s history, highlighting the genre’s rich diversity and its enduring impact on our society. From the pioneers of the 1970s to the trailblazers of today, these songs have shaped the world of music and continue to drive conversations around equity, representation, and social justice.

We invite you to listen and groove to the beats that have defined a generation and continue to resonate with our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This playlist is a tribute to the cultural significance of hip-hop and a testament to the power of music to unite us all.
