Chicago’s National Public Housing Museum (NPHM), the only cultural institution in the country dedicated to telling the story of public housing, is preparing for a grand opening in a new permanent location with a little help from renowned hip hop DJ Spinderella.
Spinderella, who came to fame as one-third of the groundbreaking female hip-hop trio Salt-N-Pepa, is joining the NPHM as Curator of its Music Room – a gallery dedicated to telling the story of the on-going relationship between public housing and American music.
