Free Event: Hip Hop Group Souls of Mischief Roll Up On the de Young

Bay Area hip hop group Souls of Mischief is participating in a free event at the de Young Museum this Saturday, December 14th – tickets still available. The crew, who hail from Oakland and are also part of the hip hop collective Hieroglyphics, have designed a special day of events, reaffirming the right of communities of color to assemble publicly in the Bay Area and beyond.

The entire day of activities is free to attend, which includes a screening of their documentary ‘Til Infinity: Souls of Mischief, followed by a panel discussion with Opio, Pheston, Tajai, and A-Plus. There will also be a live performance in the museum’s Wilsey Court, along with youth activities offered by Akira’s Book Club.

Saturday’s activities are part of the museum’s Soul of a Nation series, celebrating art made by black artists from the age of Civil Rights through Reagan’s presidency. The internationally acclaimed exhibition, organized by Tate Modern, runs until March 2020.
