Hip Hop Listening Session: Native Tongues Edition
Celebrating the times when people used to gather to listen to music in community, Hip Hop Listening Sessions are collaboratively generated musical experiences that provide instigators and audiences with the opportunity to engage in deep dives into an artist’s album and discography or generate live soundtracks centered on a theme.

Join ethnomusicologist Dr. Fredara Hadley, Kennedy Center Hip Hop Culture Council member Xavier Jernigan, DJ Miss H.E.R, DJ Face, and event host & producer Frank Brown Jr. as they explore the discography of the iconic Native Tongues Collective as part of the Hip Hop Block Party. Come prepared to discuss your favorite tracks by The Jungle Brothers, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Leaders of the New School, Black Sheep, Monie Love, Queen Latifah, Chi-Ali, and more. The listening session will feature a live soundtrack spun by DJ Raydar Ellis.
