UHHM Overview

The Universal Hip Hop Museum  (UHHM) is a New York based non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation, documentation, and celebration of Hip Hop culture worldwide. Founded and supported by Hip Hop artists and advocates, UHHM is the official record of Hip Hop.

During this time of racial, social, and health uncertainty, UHHM is working with Hip Hop artists, political activists, educators, and civil rights advocates to create exclusive content that will amplify underserved voices and digitally engage audiences at home.

COVID 19 and political incertitude weigh heavy on the minds of all of us. Racial turmoil and civil unrest have increased anxieties and tribalism. Hip Hop was born out of such strife and will continue to provide musical solace and peaceful alternatives to systemic issues.

This years marks the 75th anniversary of the International Day of Peace or Peace Day. From the “Stop the Violence Movement” to participation in the Black lives Matter Movement, Hip Hop continues to provide peaceful leadership and advocacy. Hip Hop 4 Peace is a continuation of this rich cultural history.

Together, we can be the change we seek

Hip Hop was created as an artful mechanism through which those who were disenfranchised, marginalized, and underrepresented could speak truth to power and effectuate meaningful change in communities of color. Peace and knowledge are guiding principles of Hip Hop as demonstrated by the “Stop the Violence” movement, the Hip Hop Proclamation of Peace, and the sociopolitical activism of many Hip Hop artists. Composed from the notes of racial injustice and melodies of audible pain, Hip Hop has used music to bring about greater understanding and radical change.

As we reflect on the disproportional effect of COVID 19 on individuals of color and systemic bias in policing which has led to the unnecessary deaths of countless black Americans, the Universal Hip Hop Museum will lead a call-to-consciousness on September 21, 2020, International Peace Day, by producing a one-hour Hip Hop 4 Peace live stream. Hip Hop 4 Peace will include a renewed Hip Hop Proclamation of Peace, performances by Hip Hop artists from around the world, and messages of peace from the Hip Hop community.

 The Universal Hip Hop Museum humbly requests your support of peace for all people, particularly black, brown, and underrepresented folks. Donate now! Together, we can be the change we seek.
