Award-winning artist, actor and activist, Common, is coming to the Kauffman Center Aug. 29. Maimouna Youssef, known as Mumu Fresh, will be opening for Common.

Common won an Academy Award and Golden Globe for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture alongside John Legend for “Glory” in the Oscar-nominated film Selma. Common also starred in the film, which was centered around the American civil rights marches of the 1960s. The original song “Stand Up for Something,” co-written by Common in the film Marshall, received Oscar, GRAMMY, NAACP and Critic Choice Award nominations. Common is starring in two films set to be released this year, The Kitchen and The Informer.

In addition to his work in music and acting, Common has dedicated the past few years to his work in activism. He has spent many hours advocating for social justice and bringing awareness to issues involving mass incarceration, mental health and voting. After successes with a concert and tour centered around his activism, Common launched his non-profit, Imagine Justice, in 2018. Imagine Justice is committed to using the power of art to advocate for communities throughout the country and to fight for justice and equality.
