Rev. Sekou And North Mississippi Allstars On World Cafe
Sekou's new album, In Times Like These, was produced by Luther and Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars, who join him for a live performance in this session.
Rev. Sekou is a preacher, pastor and social activist with music in his blood. In this session Sekou is joined by the North Mississippi Allstars - whose members Luther and Cody Dickinson produced his new album, In Times Like These - for a performance recorded onstage at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia. We talk about his time in Ferguson after the death of Michael Brown; Sekou was arrested while teaching nonviolent civil disobedience. He also shares a song from his grandmother that he sings when his faith is tested.
