An effort to document and preserve the origins of popping will be launched. It is part of the “Valley Public History Initiative: Preserving our Stories” project.
The project was created by a group of Fresno State history professors. Saturday’s event will include walk-in oral histories and digitizing photographs that document the early history of popping. It will run from 9 a.m. to noon.
The event will be followed by a discussion with historian Sean Slusser and B-Boy Goku, which will start at noon. A lunch and a dancing demonstration will run from 1 to 2 p.m.
All activities will be in Room 2206 of the Henry Madden Library.
