The people behind the Universal Hip-Hop Museum want to know your thoughts. Mostly your thoughts pertaining to hip-hop, but we’re guessing they might also field feelings about current events and politics — it’s all sort of intertwined anyway. So, they’re hosting this event and asking local emcees, hip-hop artists, journalists, clothing designers, professors, gallery owners, memorabilia collectors, and basically anyone who incorporates hip-hop into their work to chime in. The conversation is part of an initiative to create a virtual museum (their brick and mortar operation is in the Bronx) and “augmented reality exhibit experiences.” Runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; 4001 W. McNichols Rd., Detroit; uhhm.org; free.
