Talib Kweli

[media-credit id=23 align="alignnone" width="400"][/media-credit]It is fitting that Talib Kweli will be visiting Auraria Campus to speak about black history. The rapper’s first name is Arabic for “student” or “seeker,” and on April 13, Kweli will present many students with plenty of knowledge. The Brooklyn-born Kweli formed his most notable project Black Star, with rapper and actor Mos Def in 1998, but has continued to release solo albums to mass critical acclaim. He will be speaking as part of the Sankofa Lecture Series, which is being sponsored by Metro Department of African and African-American Studies. Although there won’t be a live performance, Kweli is still a talented, thought-out wordsmith, especially if he is on record. Either way, the event should be memorable.
