Audra Russell chats with author and professor Dr. Regina Bradley.
Dr. Bradley is the author of Chronicling Stankonia: the Rise of the Hip-Hop South. Chronicling Stankonia explores how Atlanta, GA hip hop duo OutKast influences the culture of the Black American South in the long shadow of the Civil Rights Movement. Dr. Bradley is also the editor of a collection of essays about OutKast for the University of Georgia Press titled An OutKast Reader.
In this episode, we talk about the rap group, OutKast, and how they made room for the South in hip hop's previously bicoastal terrain.
