Talib Kweli talks Race, Justice & Hip Hop w/ Judge LaDoris Cordell

Sometime in 1999 or maybe it was early 2000, Mos Def & Talib Kweli ( commonly known as Blackstar) released an EP titled “Hip Hop for Respect” in response to the death of Amadou Diallo, who was shot jordan sale 41 times while reaching for his wallet, by New York City Police. A decade later both artists still continue to stand up for equality and social justice.

Recently my otha mother Judge LaDoris Cordell (ret) invited me to an Inforum discussion she would be having with Kweli in San Francisco. I jumped at the opportunity to see two people I truly admire meet and discuss hip hop, rampant police brutality, social injustice and the role of the artist within such a paradigm.
