In his talk, Kevin Coval gives a brief overview of the history of hip-hop, both as a larger movement and in his own life. Coval explores how hip-hop can create an empathetic culture in, as he puts it, "a moment of radical un-listening." Kevin Coval is a poet and community builder. As the artistic director of Young Chicago Authors, founder of Louder Than A Bomb: The Chicago Youth Poetry Festival, and professor at the University of Illinois- Chicago—where he teaches hip-hop aesthetics—he’s mentored thousands of young writers, artists, and musicians, including Chance the Rapper.He is the author and editor of 10 books, including The BreakBeat Poets: New American Poetry in the Age of Hip-Hop and Schtick, andco-author of the play, This is Modern Art. His work has appeared in Poetry Magazine, The Drunken Boat, Chicago Tribune, CNN, Fake Shore Drive, Huffington Post, and four seasons of HBO’s Def Poetry Jam. The Chicago Tribune has called him “the voice of the new Chicago” and the Boston Globe says he’s “the city’s unofficial poet laureate.” Coval’s forthcoming collection, A People’s History of Chicago drops in April 2017 on Haymarket Books. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
