What a night! The People Speak

Lupe Fiasco performed last night at The People Speak [M.Klonsky pic]
Packed house went wild last nigh at Metro in Chicago for The People Speak. Opened with Matt Damon reading Howard Zinn's "The Problem With Civil Obedience", Malcolm London doing Fred Hampton. Lupe Fiasco, Idris Goodwin, Avery Young (an amazing version of Nina Simone's "Mississippi Goddam"), Angela Jackson, She'Kira McKnight, Rick Kogan, Rami Nashashibi doing a brilliant reading of Dr. King's "Where do we go from here" (1967), Kevin Coval, doing Nelson Algren, much more... Take this on the road please.


  1. That sounded like an awesome show!! I wish I found this out sooner!!

    I read this article from USC:

    What do you think about this Professor Klonsky?

  2. Hannah,
    The article and graphic are misleading in many ways. The implication here is that the less a country spends of education, the better it's student learning outcomes. Ridiculous. Let's discuss it in class.


Agree? Disagree? Let me hear from you.
