It’s no mystery: Talib Kweli is as passionate about activism as he is rapping.
The Brooklyn-bred wordsmith has participated in various community protests over the years — one of the most recent being in Ferguson, Missouri, following unarmed teen Michael Brown's death
Kweli’s also publicly condemned racism, police brutality, white supremacy, voting and the prison industrial complex.
Back in November, he traveled to Little Rock, Arkansas, to speak at Philander Smith College's “Bless the Mic” lecture series
. Following his lecture, Kweli spoke with Arkansas Times contributor James Murray
about why he’s critical of voting, his views on white supremacy, and the criticism Macklemore has received from hip-hop enthusiasts.
