22nd Anniversary Commemoration Highlights
Highlights from our 22nd anniversary commemoration, which brought together thousands in New York and around the globe for in-person and digital remembrance of the day that changed our world forever.
Each season, our free public program series brings together diverse speakers who address varied aspects of the 9/11 legacy and related topics. Join us on Thursday, October 12, for Intersections, examining the often surprising connections between 9/11 and today’s world. From global industries to individual lives, the attacks marked a fundamental shift for many, altering trajectories in ways both expected and unforeseen.
Amid one of New York City’s most tumultuous decades, 1973 saw the dedication of the World Trade Center and the birth of Hip Hop. As we look at 9/11's far-reaching impact on popular culture, we mark this twin milestone 50 years later with Dr. MC Debbie D, Hip Hop historian and pioneer MC; Chuck Creekmur, CEO of AllHipHop.com; and Rocky Bucano, Executive Director of The Hip Hop Museum. Together in conversation with Museum Director Clifford Chanin, they reflect on the history of Hip Hop, how the genre has evolved in a post-9/11 world, and how New York City and its ever-changing skyline influenced the artistic movement that now spans the globe.
