The new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture (NMAAHC) opened in 2016 with former President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama. Included in the Hip Hop Section is a display case which features pioneer Bronx Crews and includes my name (Debbie Dee)! (For the record, I actually write it as Debbie D)
I am elated to be mentioned among these wonderful pioneers in such a place of honor and dignity and know that this is something I will treasure for a lifetime! As we close out our highlight of Women’s History Month, let me also congratulate the other Hip Hop Matriarchs who are also mentioned: MCs Lisa Lee, Sha Rock, Pebblee Poo, Mercedes Ladies and DJ Wanda Dee!
Well done, ladies!
