Boots Riley is the co-founder and primary producer of the renowned hip hop group The Coup. Raised amongst political action in Oakland, Riley has been involved in organizing and inspiring youth since he was a teenager. From student organizing in public schools, serving on the central committee for InCAR (International Committee Against Racism), and organizing to build California's Anti-Racist Farm Workers' Union, Riley has been an integral part of a progressive struggle for radical change through culture.
Riley's activism, from local issues to international ones, has set an unprecedented standard of political organizing among hip hop artists. Join us for a night of candid thoughts, spoken words and Q & A.
