In 1995, @outkast took home a Source Award for “Best New Artist” for this first album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. In front of a booing audience, @andre3000 grabbed the mic and declared “The South got something to say!” This statement became an anthem, a rallying cry, that changed the course of hip hop and kicked open the door for a new generation of regional storytellers. Now it’s our time and we are thrilled to announce the launch of www.midwestculturemarket.org!
Leaning on the legacy of our elders born in the South and whose children migrated to states like Ohio, Illinois, and Michigan, it’s time for us to tell our stories. We are no longer waiting for outsiders to tell our stories or define our culture. Creatives and social justice organizers from across the Midwest are coming together to co-create the world we deserve through art and activism. The Marketplace is a celebration of Midwest culture and the people who create it. By purchasing from this store, you are directly supporting a set of brilliant up and coming creatives located in Chicago, Ohio, and Michigan. We are Black and Brown folks. We are from and living in the Midwest. We got something to say!
