Angie Thomas in Conversation with MK Asante
Thomas will be in conversation with MK Asante, award-winning writer, filmmaker, hip-hop artist, and distinguished professor.
Insightful, unflinching, and full of heart, On the Come Up (published February 5 by HarperCollins), an ode to hip-hop, is the story of fighting for your dreams, even as the odds are stacked against you; and about how, especially for young black people, freedom of speech isn't always free.
Featuring Youth Poet Laureates.
