Arts & Context
A Conversation with Mumu Fresh
In this free lunchtime talk at The Pinhook in downtown Durham, GRAMMY-nominated vocalist and emcee Maimouna Youssef (aka Mumu Fresh) sits down with Crystal Taylor (Beats n Bars) to discuss her career, influences, Muslim-American heritage, and the role that women have played in shaping contemporary hip-hop. Part of Duke Performances’ three-year Building Bridges: Muslims in America initiative, Mumu Fresh’s residency will culminate in a full-band performance at The Pinhook on the evening of Saturday, September 21.
Free and open to the public. Light lunch provided by Pie Pushers. Arts & Context is co-sponsored by the Forum for Scholars and Publics at Duke University, The Pinhook, North Star, and Pie Pushers.
