Of course it's a black culture. How many black hip hop archivist are there?
I didn't even know there are Hip Hop archivist. For all I know she is the only one.
I can name 20 people from the hip hop community from the late 80's and early 90's that I would say is either as knowledgeable or more knowledgeable simply from being there at that time (then again she could have been there too back then)
But are they qualified to be a archivist or whatever? No.
An easy neutral answer for me would be someone like Ed Lover.
