Simon Kouka is a Senegalese social activist, entrepreneur, & artist whose music addresses sociopolitical issues in Senegal and beyond. In 2011, Simon paused his musical projects to join the Y'en a marre movement, the goal of which is to protest ineffective government and register youth to vote. Docta is a Senegalese social activist and artist—a pioneer of African graffiti. Since the 90s, Docta has used his art to give voice to the voiceless & oppressed. The Emory Institute of African Studies and the Carlos Museum present a free public conversation program with Kouka and Docta at 4 p.m. on Friday, November 3 in Room 206 of Anthropology Building, located at 1557 Dickey Drive.
