(21)

For centuries, America has beckoned to immigrants the world over. With courage and determination they have traveled thousands of miles to rejoin loved ones, for economic opportunity, or simply to know freedom. As a nation of immigrants, America has benefited from an infusion of talents and skills that are the foundations of many rich traditions. In the civic, economic, and artistic arenas, yesterd

ay's newcomer is tomorrow's pioneer in a continuing process that defines us to this day. The preservation and presentation of the immigrant experience in the United States is a central commitment of the New Americans Museum's mission. We are dedicated to insuring that individual stories are safeguarded in the Family Histories Essays and Oral and Visual Histories archives as enduring testaments to our immigrant roots as a culture and a nation.

Did you know that the legendary DJ Kool Herc, the inventor of the dual-turntable technique at hip-hop's core, has Jamaican roots? πŸ‡―πŸ‡²

Nicknamed "Hercules" for his towering 6-foot 5-inch frame, Herc unveiled the groundbreaking "merry go 'round" turntable technique. He used two versions of the same record to extend the song's most dynamic section, setting the stage for the birth of B-boys and B-girls, igniting dance floors worldwide! πŸ•ΊπŸ’ƒ

The innovative beats that emerged from his hands echoed not only his immigrant journey but also the power of diversity in shaping hip-hop culture. 🌍🎢

At New Americans Museum, we celebrate the rich tapestry of immigrant stories that have shaped American culture. Let's salute DJ Kool Herc and the incredible impact of immigrant innovation in the arts! πŸ™Œ
