Kevin Coval is the founding editor of The BreakBeat Poets imprint on Haymarket Books, & Artistic Director of the MacArthur Award-winning cultural organization, “Young Chicago Authors”.

Chicago educator, writer, and poet extraordinaire Kevin Coval returns to Dynasty Podcasts, in support of his new book, A People's History of Chicago. Over the course of a half hour, Coval and Dynasty host Jaime Black go deep in their love of all things Chicago history and culture, including co-reading the closing poem of A People's History, ‘Chicago Has My Heart.’

Coval speaks on selections from the poetry book, including passages on everything from underground Chicago talent like Molemen, to Chief Keef’s legendary performance at Lollapalooza 2012, to looking back at a less problematic time for Kanye West.

The writer also reflects on the heartbreak inherent in so many of Chicago’s stories, in addition to speaking on his plans to perform in all 77 of Chicago’s neighborhoods in 2017.
