Kevin Coval has written a book of poems about the history of the City of Chicago and the influence that hip hop has had on it throughout the centuries of its existence. He’s also put together an excellent gallery featuring work from artists that contributed to his book.
Tomorrow is the last night of that gallery, and your last chance to buy an exclusive piece of work from artists like Hebru Brantley, Paul Branton, Runsy, Bianca Pastel, and Troy Scat. As well as a chance to hear a reading from Kevin, Matt Muse, Lyriq the Mi$fit, and Patricia Frazier.
This book has received the blessings of Chance The Rapper, who has been greatly inspired by Kevin, and even wrote the Foreword to the book!
It’s a free event, and an awesome opportunity to see what this city really has to offer.
Chicago Truborn (1741 W Chicago Ave).
Thursday May 25 – Readings begin at 7:30
