The Meridians booth in the exhibition hall welcomed a steady stream of visitors, many who congratulated the editors and guest editors on the recent special issue, “Representin’: Women, Hip-Hop, and Popular Music,” which has been enthusiastically received by a wider readership. Guest editor Janell Hobson was among the presenters at the conference, lending her energy in promoting this issue of the journal.
Meridians editor Paula Giddings was also among the conference presenters, engaging in conversation with Beverly Guy-Sheftall about her newly released autobiography on Ida B. Wells, A Sword among Lions to a packed audience.
