Today (July 9) comedian Dave Chappelle will make another one of his rare
appearance’s at an event for Democratic Congressional candidate Kevin
Powell, a former Real World-er jumped into politics at a young age
and has since served as a political activist, poet, journalist,
essayist, Hip Hop historian, public speaker, and entrepreneur.
of recently, Powell has been campaigning to gain a seat in the United
States Congress in the 10th Congressional District in Brooklyn, New
“I’ve decided to do this because, as some of you know, I have been
a public servant, in some form, for two decades, since my days as a
teenage student leader at Rutgers University,” Kevin Powell states on
his website. “I am completely committed to the ideals of freedom,
justice, and equality, in America, and on this planet, and I am proof
that much can be achieved if we are determined to make a change,
personally and politically.”
The event will be deejayed by DJ Reborn and there will be a special performance by Emily King.
