CHIRP is proud to sponsor the Chicago Humanities Festival’s event “Hanif Abdurraqib: They Can't Kill Us Until They Kill Us.” Poet, writer, and cultural critic Hanif Abdurraqib uses his distinctly ruminative voice and deep investment in popular culture and music to dissect the everyday threats to the lives of black Americans. In They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us, inspired by the music of Ice Cube, Abdurraqib ranges over a cross-section of experiences, from attending a Bruce Springsteen concert the day after visiting Michael Brown’s grave in Ferguson to the first time he was ordered to the ground by police officers—for attempting to enter his own car. Chicago poet and author of Wild Hundreds, Nate Marshall joins Abdurraqib for what's sure to be an dynamic if sobering conversation.
