We explore Glen’s work documenting hip-hop in the 1980s, and moments he captured with great artists like RUN DMC, Public Enemy, and Ice T, shown below.

Also in today’s episode, Glen tells us about the Liberty Street Protests, a graphic protest of the war in Iraq which took place right across the street from the World Trade Center site, demolished in the 9/11 attacks.

As Glen explains, graphic images were hung in windows in a loft belonging to Def Jam mogul and hip-hop pioneer Russell Simmons, and the message was: “New Yorkers were right here when 9/11 happened, and we don’t want this war in our names.”
