The South Won: Sports, Music and the New South

Sunday, March 13
5:00PM - 6:00PM

Four Seasons
Ballroom AB
98 San Jacinto Blvd

ESPN's Bomani Jones, New York Magazine's Rembert Browne, SB Nation's Spencer Hall and Elena Bergeron, and rap legend Bun B will talk about about sports, music, the identity of the new south, and the interplay between the three in everyday life. They’ll discuss how college football met southern hip-hop, whether and how the musical styles of the south are merging into one, how the NBA finally found its own local niches in the region, and whether all of this is leading to the region coming together or dividing itself anew.
