Ah Oh! Black Twitter Reacts to Finding Out That a White Woman Curates the Hip Hop Exhibit at the National Museum Of African American History and Culture

By Tamantha Hip-HopVibe.com Staff Writer

Black twitter is up in arms today after finding out that Timothy Anne, a white woman, was the curator of the Hip-Hop exhibit at the National Museum Of African American History and Culture.

DJ Chubb E Swagg tweeted:

THERE IS A WHITE WOMAN CURATING THE HIP HOP PART OF THE NMAAHC SMITHSONIAN?!?!?!?!?!?!? WHO LET THIS SHIT HAPPEN!?!?!

Soon after, everyone was wondering how exactly did this happen.

One twitter user wrote:

“A White woman has no business curating anything Hip Hop at the NMAAHC museum and it’s irresponsible to do so given the course of African American History in America 

Would they let an African American curate the survivor diaries in a Holocaust exhibit? 

Hip hop is our diary.”

While a lot of celebrities like Chuck D and Symone Sanders have come forward to show support for Timothy, everyone else wants to know why wasn’t a person of color chosen to curate the exhibit.

Are people reaching or should a black person have been the one to curate the exhibit?

Take a look at some of the twitter reactions below.
