Dr. Emmett G. Price III is a musician, ethnomusicologist, composer and clinician. He is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Music and African American Studies at Northeastern University. After receiving his B.A. in music from University of California, Berkeley he completed both M.A. and Ph.D. in Music (Ethnomusicology) at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Price specializes in the music of the African Diaspora with primary focus on the study of Black Music in the United States as a means of social, political and cultural expression. He actively publishes on jazz; gospel and hip-hop in addition to other related subjects. Dr. Price serves as the musician/ ethnomusicologist in this project. The project grant was conceived and composed by Dr. Robin Chandler. The project is housed within the African American Studies Department.

The overall project is centered on the development of the Twenty-first Century Hip Hop Library and Archive Project utilizing an Intergenerational Mentoring Model (IMM). Undergraduate students are selected from current and past students of the Foundations of Black Culture – Hip-Hop course (the teaching arm of the project). The students, in turn, are mentored by an arts educator/ Hip-Hop practitioner/ part-time lecturer AND a junior (Visiting Assistant Professor) who is also a musician/ ethnomusicologist. The junior professionals, in turn, are mentored by senior faculty (both a historian and sociologist) in order to maintain a focus on the curriculum and the theoretical elements of learning, decision-making, materials acquisition process, guide the development of applied research on Hip Hop, and observe the process whereby a multidimensional library collection becomes relevant and accessible to multiple types of communities of learners, both academic (undergraduate/ graduate, and faculty), community, and popular culture/ entertainment audiences.
