Paul Robeson Cultural Center To Host Ice Cube October 27

Penn State’s Paul Robeson Cultural Center will host rapper Ice Cube for a virtual conversation titled “A Contract With Black America” on Tuesday, October 27.

The event will be hosted via Zoom, and will begin at 5:30 p.m.

During the event, Ice Cube will speak on his “Contract with Black America,” a 13-step document that outlines the fight against systemic racism in the United States. The conversation will be hosted by Caleb Wiley, the center’s director.

Ice Cube has been known for Civil Rights activism since 1988 when he and his NWA hip hop group made their famous single, “Fuck Tha Police.” The rapper was a pioneer for Gangsta Rap, a popular West Coast movement in the 1980s and 1990s.

Ice Cube has had a lucrative career, completing 10 solo albums to date. He most recently came out with “Everythangs Corrupt” in 2018, including hit song “Arrest The President.”

Despite the rapper’s sentiment two years ago, the Los Angeles native has recently made headlines for his willingness to work with the Trump Administration.
