Off the Shelf Author Talk with Regina Bradley
February 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Regina Bradley discusses her book “Chronicling Stankonia: The Rise of the Hip-Hop South”
About this Event
“Chronicling Stankonia: The Rise of the Hip-Hop South” is a vibrant book that pulses with the beats of a new American South, probing the ways music, literature and film have remixed Southern identities for a post–civil rights generation. This work, author Regina N. Bradley argues, helps define new cultural possibilities for Black Southerners who came of age in the 1980s and 1990s and have used hip-hop culture to buffer themselves from the historical narratives and expectations of the civil rights era.
This talk is part of Off the Shelf, a collaboration between the University Libraries and the UNC Press to present new works on racial and social justice in our history and our world. The talk is co-presented by Southern Cultures and the Center for the Study of the American South.
