Rapper, activist to host lecture at UGA
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Perhaps best known for his role in the hip hop group Public Enemy, rapper Chuck D is set to deliver a lecture later this month at the University of Georgia titled "Rap, Race and Reality."
The event, scheduled for Nov. 27, is sponsored by the university's student union and will be held in the Grand Hall of the Tate Student Center.
Chuck D, Public Enemy's front man, became a hip-hop fixture in the late 1980s with the group recording songs speaking to the social, political and economic issues facing urban communities.
The Banner-Herald of Athens (http://bit.ly/TB4wk6) reports the lecture will begin at 7:30 p.m. and is free for students. Tickets are $5 for the general public.
