Did you know that rap pioneer and Sigma Gamma Rho soror MC Lyte will have her custom SGRho sneakers featured in a collection in the new National Museum of African American History and Culture in DC that is opening next month?
MC Lyte made history in 1988 as the first ever solo female rapper to release a full album. She has long been considered one of hip-hop’s pioneer feminists. She also is a proud member of the black sorority and is the International Ambassador for Sigma Gamma Rho’s Project Reassurance program.
The blue and gold Converse All Star shoes that will be featured in the Smithsonian collection are embroidered with the founding year of Sigma Gamma Rho on the sides as well as MC Lyte’s name. On the back, the greek letters for the sorority are embroidered in gold and the blue inside lining features a “1922” print.
The National Museum of African American History and Culture is a Smithsonian Institution museum that will open on September 24, 2016.
