Lawrence Times columnist and social justice educator Cody Charles recently facilitated a virtual discussion with Big Freedia, a New Orleans-based hip-hop artist and worldwide bounce music ambassador.
Students from the Pride Committee at the Hopkins Center for the Arts at Dartmouth participated in the conversation.
The clip below starts with Big Freedia discussing a very memorable request she received from one of the most influential recording artists of all time.
Through the rest of the conversation, Freedia discusses “her presence in the New Orleans bounce scene, her many collaborations across genre, and her queer identity,” as The Hop at Dartmouth phrased it.
