In honor of Black History Month, the Chicago native @Common, award-winning hip-hop artist, is hosting a speaker series that celebrates innovative African Americans.
AT&T created the series, which spans five cities starting in Atlanta on Feb. 7. Common takes the tour to the Field Museum on Feb. 17 and sits down with Kevin Powell, an author, activist and recent Democratic candidate for Congress in New York.
Tickets to the series are free but limited (order here). Each event also can be streamed online.
