SOLD OUT: One Night in Las Vegas: The 25th Anniversary of the Tupac Shakur Murder
On the night of September 7, 1996, in Las Vegas, hip hop superstar Tupac Shakur was shot four times while sitting in a car idling at a stoplight. Shakur died six days later at a local hospital. His death was devastating to his family, friends and millions of fans. It also further inflamed tensions between rival record companies on the West and East coasts, as well as between the street gangs associated with them. To mark the 25th anniversary of this horrific event, hip hop legend Chuck D and others will explore the events that led to Shakur’s death, the controversies that followed, and Shakur’s cultural legacy. Guests will have the unique opportunity to attend a meet-and-greet with all panelists from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
This program will take place in the Museum’s Historic Courtroom. Tickets for this program are now sold out.
