Chance The Rapper To Speak At NAACP Event Addressing Trump Administration’s “Civil Rights Threats”

“The People’s Inauguration” will gather youth activists in Washington, D.C.

Fresh off receiving four nominations for NAACP Image Awards, Chance the Rapper will be tapped by the organization as a guest speaker at a January event in Washington D.C., following Donald Trump's inauguration.

The 'People's Inauguration' is billed by the NAACP's Youth & College division as "a gathering of youth activists next month to organize and plan how to respond to new civil rights threats expected under a new administration and congress in 2017."

Later on, the press release references the president-elect specifically, establishing "the goal to launch a new era of activism and protest against potential threats from the presidency of Donald J. Trump."

The event also comes as part of a broader initiative, dubbed #StayWokeAndFight, which promises to face future threats to civil rights with "direct actions, protests, and other activism." Read the full release here.
