Earl Sweatshirt will host a one-on-one conversation with his mother and scholar, Professor Cheryl I. Harris [author of groundbreaking scholarship in the field of Critical Race Theory, including Whiteness as Property (Harvard Law Review)]. Professor Harris is also the Arthur Gilbert Foundation Chair in Civil Rights and Civil Liberties at UCLA School of Law. The event, which is open to the public (first come, first serve), will commence on Saturday, December 7th at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA in Los Angeles at 1:00pm. Get more info HERE. MOCA members can RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The conversation between Earl and Professor Harris is an extension of a series of fan experiences Earl has been curating around Los Angeles, which included the Harun Gallery pop-up in Leimert Park around the release of his recent, critically-acclaimed project Feet of Clay via Tan Cressida / Warner Records. Additionally, the MOCA event will feature exclusive merch and the 9-foot statue of Nebuchadnezzar, erected from the Feet of Clay concept and imagery that has been making its way through Los Angeles at the earlier pop-ups, as well as on stage during Earl’s unforgettable performance at Camp Flog Gnaw. Don’t miss this exclusive discussion between mother and son this coming Saturday and listen to the riveting project Feet of Clay now.
