(Via Allhiphop.com) Grammy Award winner and political activist, Mississippi rapper David Banner, is set to appear at Harvard University with The League of Young Voters for a summit of leading scholars, activists, and artists.

“The L.A. Riots: Twenty Years Later” Conference, to be held on April 27 and 28 at Harvard’s TSAI Auditorium in Cambridge, Massachusetts, will take a retrospective look at the six-day L.A. Riots of 1992, sparked by the acquittal of Los Angeles police officers who beat Rodney King on video. The conference also looks to examine the riots in the context of democracy and inequity today, a time of economic crisis and revolution in much of the world.

At the conference, Banner will discuss how America has changed from the days when Rodney King was assaulted to the Trayvon Martin uprising 20 years later. The rapper will be accompanied by Henry Louis Gates Jr., panelists from Harvard University, NYU, Temple University, and more.
