Northside Hip Hop Archive is a digital collection of Canadian hip hop history and culture founded by Dr. Mark V. Campbell. Inspired by his “Bigger Than Hip Hop” radio show that aired for two decades on CHRY 105.5 in North York, this project seeks to redress the historic undervaluing of Black life in Canada, our cultures, communities and contribution.
The online archive is a living project that combines old artifacts with new documents and creations. It houses a selection of artifacts and multimedia memorabilia collected from 2010-2016 and is in transition while the team in the process of digitizing, cataloguing and expanding the collection, courtesy of architects organizing and producing for our biggest multi-city collaboration to date, the “I Was There Project.”
