Chance The Rapper Pens Foreword For Kevin Coval’s ‘A People’s History Of Chicago’

(AllHipHop News) Hip Hop artist Chancellor “Chance The Rapper” Bennett was tapped to provide the foreword to the forthcoming A People’s History Of Chicago.

Kevin Coval’s book of poetry – inspired by Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States – celebrates the Windy City.


A description of the collection reads in part:

These seventy-seven poems (for the city’s seventy-seven neighborhoods) honor the everyday lives and enduring resistance of the city’s workers, poor people, and people of color, whose cultural and political revolutions continue to shape the social landscape.

Coval has written seven books, and he teaches Hip Hop aesthetics at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

A People’s History Of Chicago is available for pre-order on Amazon.
