Chuck D, of legendary hip-hop group Public Enemy, will be visiting the UCLA campus on Wednesday, May 7 to talk to students about politics.
The rapper will voice his concerns about the need to organize, educate and participate in order to take back democracy from "corporatocracy," which is an economic and political system controlled by corporations or corporate interests.
He will also be encouraging students to attend the campus's musical rally, the United We Stand Festival, that's taking place this upcoming weekend on May 10.
The United We Stand Festival is put on by grassroots organization Free & Equal Elections Foundation and is sponsored by UCLA's Afrikan Student Union.
Musical headliners on Saturday include Public Enemy, Wu-Tang Clan, Immortal Technique, Brother Ali, The Siren, Paul Masvidal of Cynic, Tatiana Moroz and many more.
Students from any college or university can go to the Central Ticket Office and receive one free ticket with a valid student ID card.
