Big Freedia Bringing Pride to National Museum of African American History and Culture
The New Orleans Queen of Bounce will host a conversation and dance party.
The Queen of Bounce is headed for the National Museum of African American History and Culture. New Orleans icon Big Freedia is set to host a book reading and conversation around her memoir, God Save the Queen Diva!, with TV host and author Karamo Brown.
The Smithsonian Institution, located in the National Mall of Washington, D.C., is presenting the event in recognition of June being Pride Month—this year, that also coincides with the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall riots. The reading and discussion are to be followed by a “brief bounce demonstration by Big Freedia” and a dance party.
She shared the event, which is set for June 22, on social media.
