Kevin Coval to come to All Scholar Retreat

We’re are thrilled to announce that Kevin Coval will be making a special guest appearance at the All Scholar Retreat next Friday to lead two sessions with Scholars about utilizing their voices and telling their own unique stories to impact change.

Afterwards, he will be signing copies of his most recent book, A People’s History of Chicago, which was published in April on Haymarket Books.  We will also be raffling off copies of his book (Chance the Rapper wrote the forward)!

While you may know him as a teacher and mentor to Chance the Rapper or for his role on four seasons of HBO’s Def Poetry Jam, Kevin is first and foremost a poet and community builder, as well as the artistic director of Young Chicago Authors, founder of Louder Than A Bomb, and a professor of hip-hop aesthetics at University of Illinois – Chicago.
