Boots Riley
14th & V | Langston Room | August 26, 2015 | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Politics & Prose at Busboys and Poets, 14th & V, presents Boots Riley as he discusses his new book Tell Homeland Security - We Are the Bomb.

As part of the rap group The Coup, among other projects, Riley is a socially conscious and notoriously defiant rapper from the Bay Area, who has been observing cultural movements and creating music for more than twenty years. This collection of lyrics, commentary, and photographs is Riley’s personal history as well as an account of some of America’s most divisive social conversations from the past two decades, including absurdist arguments, colorful language, and revolutionary viewpoints.

Riley will be appearing with Dave Zirin, sports editor for The Nation, Sirius XM co-host of The Collision, and author of eight books.
