- Inside Sony Music: A Recap of “What You Mean?” Panel Event
- Mar 02, 2020
Last week at The Orchard office in New York City, 200 attendees gathered for the “What You Mean? The Semantics of Music & the Music Business” panel event.
The panel included Wylef Jean, musician, author and activist, Ivie Ani, journalist and on-air correspondent, Professor John Baugh, a Professor of Psychology, Anthropology, Education, English Linguistics and African-American Studies, and Naji Grampus, Director of Urban Strategy at The Orchard, and was moderated by Eddie Moses, the Associate Director of Sales at The Orchard.
Presented by HUE (Helping Unite Everyone), the event brought people from all corners of the music industry together into a safe and respectful space to talk about the usage of the word “Urban” and its relation to political correctness.
HUE is an Employee Network Group within Sony, with a mission to promote the diversity of People of Color (“POC”), while also bringing awareness to the large influence POC bring to popular culture through educational programming.
Check out a recap of the event, below.
