OutKast Course to Be Taught at Georgia University

  /  01.08.2017

Students at Savannah, Georgia’s Armstrong State University will learn all about “Da Art of Storytelling” as part of an upcoming course, “OutKast and the Rise of Hip-Hop South.”

The class is meant to teach and explore how “ideas about the South and southernness seep into other Southern writers,” college professor Regina Bradley told the Savannah Morning News.

Bradley, who was a Nasir Jones fellow at Harvard University’s Hiphop Archive & Research Institute, said the course will also address the Black Lives Matter movement and more.

“My areas of interest are African-American literature and popular culture,” she explained. “I try to find ways to connect those… Often, students get most of their information, their outlook from how they engage in popular culture.”

Big Boi recently shared pride in the news. “It’s an honor to be studied,” he told Creative Loafing. “I am originally from Savannah, and I remember Armstrong, so that is just super dope.”

OutKast began its career in 1994 and released their fifth studio album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below in 2003. However, their latest official project as a duo was the soundtrack to the 2006 film Idlewild.
