Merkin Concert Hall at Kaufman Music Center
129 West 67th Street
Join us for an evening of engaging conversation with Common, an Oscar and Grammy Award-winning musician, artist, actor, poet, producer and activist.
His song “Stand up for Something,” co-written with Diana Warren and performed with Andra Day for the film “Marshall” about Thurgood Marshall (the first African American to serve as the Associate Justice of the Supreme Court) has been nominated for an Academy Award. In honor of Black History Month, Common will discuss his storied career, how music and film can be a lens for social change, and how the Common Ground Foundation is empowering high-school students from under-served communities to become future leaders.
