I couldn’t be more ecstatic to donate my collection of prints from the Where They At project to the Amistad Research Center at Tulane University. My prints are an addition to the center’s Where They At Collection, and will be archived alongside my project partner Alison Fensterstock’s transcribed interviews from over 60 key architects of the New Orleans hip hop sound.
The Amistad Research Center is committed to collecting, preserving, and providing open access to original materials that reference the social and cultural importance of America’s ethnic and racial history, the African Diaspora, human relations, and civil rights.
