The Class of 2021 is being called the most diverse class the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has inducted yet. “When we’re talking diverse, we’re not just looking at race,” HOF VP/Curatorial affairs, Nwaka Onwusa, told Audacy’s Taryn Daly. “We’re looking at sex, we’re looking at all of it… just the scope — diversity hits on so many different levels, and I think that’s what’s so exciting about this class.”
