Fresh, Bold & So Def
The Fresh, Bold, and So Def Women’s Initiative (FBSD), led by the Hip-Hop Education Center (HHEC) is an intergenerational, transnational Hip-Hop feminist movement that honors, empowers, and preserves the contributions and achievements of women and girls in Hip-Hop. It is the only one of its kind. FBSD includes a zine series, research project, workshops, oral history project, and the development of an archive to be housed at the Universal Hip Hop Museum. The goal of the initiative is not only to document women’s achievements and contributions to Hip-Hop, but also to build a cannon of memorabilia and artifacts including leaflets, photographs, art, poetry, and music. The FBSD Collection will be enhanced with educational tools such as a multimedia timeline and curriculum.
