Public Enemy's Chuck D to Speak at Rock Hall on Wednesday

Posted By on Mon, Feb 9, 2015 at 9:20 AM

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in 2013, Public Enemy is one of hip-hop's most significant groups. At 7 p.m. on Wednesday in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum's Foster Theater, director of education Jason Hanley will interview the group's frontman Chuck D, who once likened rap music to "CNN for black culture" for the way in which it captures the reality of life for African-Americans. The interview will take place after a screening of the Public Enemy concert film Fight the Power Live and will feature a Q&A session with the audience as well. The event is part of the Rock Hall's programming for Black History Month. Admission is free but reservations are required. Go to for more info.
