David Banner | Mapping a Modern MS

Monday, August 15, 2016

David Banner is a well-known rapper, record producer, and activist. In 2006, Banner was awarded a Visionary Award by the National Black Caucus of the State Legislature in recognition of his work during and after Hurricane Katrina.

“To be a visionary and to push forth, that means you have to be a trailblazer, you have to go before and let the followers follow. You don’t have nothing to blaze that trail before, but the thing is if you persevere, then you’re history.”

This interview is part of the Museum’s Mapping a Modern Mississippi Initiative.
