Southern Hip-Hop Week: Day 5 – Jazmine Walker Interviews Zandria Robinson on Hip-Hop Study
SouthDocs recorded an interview of Zandria Robinson by Jazmine Walker at the 2012 Blues Symposium. Robinson discusses hip-hop as a needed “contemporary lens on the South” and “articulation of regionalism.”
A reminder to join us at 2pm today for “Bar-B-Que and Gumbo: Hip-hop Politics in Two River Cities” with musicians Alfred Banks and Marco Pavé. The conversation will take place in Lamar Hall 326, and will be moderated by Kiese Laymon. A concert will follow at 7pm at Shelter on Van Buren.
The event is presented in partnership with the UM Department of Sociology and Anthropology, the UM African-American Studies Program, the UM Department of Music, and the Winter Institute.
