Poet, essayist, and culture-critic Hanif Abdurraqib (They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us) digs into the history of A Tribe Called Quest, and draws from his own experience to explore the group’s distinct sound and pervasive influence. Go Ahead in the Rain: Notes on a Tribe Called Quest is a love letter / memoir as artful and genre-bending as the rap group itself. Hanif will speak with Evan Narcisse, writer for Marvel Comic’s Black PantherĀ series). Presented in partnership with UT Press and BookPeople.
