Cornell University gets a grant to catalog and preserve Afrika Bambaataa's hiphop archive

Afrika Bambaataa concluded his inaugural three year term as the visiting scholar at Cornell's Hip Hop Collection by donating his personal library of 450 containers of 20,000 hand-annotated vinyl records, as well as other archival materials. The National Endowment for the Humanities has given Cornell a $260,000 grant to catalog the archive and put scans of Bambaataa's record-sleeve annotations online.
