A HISTORY OF HOUSTON’S HIP-HOP” BLACK HISTORY TALK AT TSU
On Wednesday, February 19, 2014 @ 5:30 p.m. Texas A&M (c/o ’02) TSU graduate (c/o ’12 M.A. in History) and native Houstonian, Maco L. Faniel, comes back home to offer “A History of Houston’s Hip-Hop” for Black History Month.
Long before the country came to know the chopped and screwed style of rap from the Bayou City, in the late 1990s, hip-hop in Houston grew steadily and produced some of the most prolific independent artists in the industry. With early roots in jazz, blues, R&B and zydeco, Houston hip-hop evolved not only as a musical form but also as a cultural movement. Join Maco as he walks us through his book Hip Hop in Houston: The Origin and Legacy (The History Press).
The talk will place hip-hop in the conversation about black history. The event will also feature a brief talk about the book, a Q&A, book signing, and photographs. BOOKS WILL ALSO BE ON SALE.
