Been Here: A Conversation with Mia X and Melissa A. Weber


Continuing the series of virtual programs that interact with the artwork of Newcomb’s current exhibition: "Brandan Bmike Odums’, NOT Supposed 2-Be Here", Been Here: a conversation between Mia X, New Orleans Native and billboard charting emcee hailed as the “Mother of Southern Gangster Rap” and Melissa A. Weber, Curator of the Hogan Jazz Archive of Tulane Special Collections, will premiere online Tuesday, September 22nd at 6pm CST. 

Through an engaging dialogue on hip-hop and career, "Been Here" probes the broader inquiry of historical remembering, asking why certain stories are included in histories while others are overlooked. Mia X and Melissa A. Weber focus mostly on the evolution and influence of hip-hop in New Orleans, showcasing the impact of trailblazing artistry in New Orleans in genres beyond jazz.
