NC Festival at Chapel Hill, NC

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WNCN) — “Culture and representation are at the forefront during the first-ever Hip-Hop South Festival in Chapel Hill.”

The festival is part of the Southern Futures Initiative from the Carolina Performing Arts. The festival is taking a deeper dive into racial equity, social justice, and the southern culture, all through an artistic lens.

“Thinking about the stories that need to be captured that haven’t been documented or are being created, crafted, and told right now. Especially when you [are] talking about Black and brown youth…hip-hop has been a way for those folks to kind of talk about their southern experience,” said festival co-curator Chris Massenburg.
