Such a fabulous evening of intimate, intelligent, thought provoking and stimulating conversation (aided by good wine and some v wonderful food) with @joanmorgan at @dumbohousebrooklyn, about Joan’s book “She Begat This: 20 Years of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” interviewed by yours truly. Joan talked about hip hop, feminism (and of course hip-hop feminism), intersectionality, the commodification of artistry, mental health, her own creative process, writing in general, and the topic of black female genius (in response to a great question on that subject by @michaelaangelad). Thanks to everyone who came out. Hope you all enjoyed! I definitely did! Thanks @joanmorgan and thanks @dumbohousebrooklyn (thank you Omar!) for a magical evening ❤️ #shebegatthis #joanmorgan #laurynhillweloveyou #ilovemusic #politicsandpopculture
