Mos Def

Unlike many others in the entertainment industry, Mos Def doesn’t just speak about social issues – he acts on them.

According to XXLmag.com, Brooklyn-born rapper/actor/activist Mos is heading to the town of Jena, Louisiana on September 20 to show his support for the “Jena 6″.

The Jena 6 are a group of African-American students whose legal plight has made big headlines in the past weeks (for the full story, read our previous blog post).

Mos Def is calling on influential African-Americans to join him in Jena, or otherwise show support for the six students.
