About Malcolm London:
MALCOLM LONDON, called the Gil-Scott Heron of this
generation by Cornel West, is an internationally recognized
Chicago poet, activist, educator &musician. London brings vim &
vigor to his energetic performances tackling tough contemporary
issues head-on. He has appeared on PBS for the first ever
televised TED Talk with John Legend & Bill Gates & has shared
stages with actor Matt Damon & rapper Lupe Fiasco as a part of
the The People Speak, Live! cast. He also appears on Season 2
of TVOne’s Verses & Flow. In 2011, Malcolm London won the
Louder Than A Bomb youth poetry slam in his native Chicago,
scooping the top award as both individual performer & with a
team. The poet, performer & activist recently wrote & directed a
spoken word infused play responding to the Zimmerman verdict
called Two Years Later at the Goodman Theatre with an
ensemble of five youth poets. As an organizer London was apart
of a historic youth delegation to the United Nations in Geneva to
address police violence in Chicago. In November of 2015 London
was targeted & arrested by Chicago Police who claimed London
assaulted a police officer but due to a international outcry via
social media & hundreds of people's presence at Cook County jail
for court hearing to address these false claims all charges were
dropped the very next day (#FreeMalcolmLondon). London, who
runs the largest youth open mic in Chicago alongside friend
Chance The Rapper, sees art as the intersection between justice
& poetic imagination. Malcolm is now taking what he's learned
from teaching & becoming an artivist & putting it into music. His
new project OPIA released Oct 17th is available free on
Soundcloud & for streaming on iTunes & Apple Music & Spotify
