Reverend Osagyefo Sekou

Civil Rights Activist

Noted activist, theologian, author, documentary filmmaker, and musician Reverend Sekou was born in St. Louis, Missouri, and raised in the rural Arkansas Delta. He was a 2014 Visiting Scholar at Stanford University’s Martin Luther King Education and Research Institute at the time of Michael Brown, Jr.’s killing, when he traveled to Ferguson, Missouri, to train hundreds of protestors in militant non-violent action. Since 2015, Reverend Sekou has focused on organizing against police violence, predatory court systems and economic and social injustice. His first-hand accounts of the protest that launched the Black Lives Matter movement are real and rare. AFROPUNK heralded the ”deep bone-marrow-level conviction” of his first album, The Revolution Has Come, and his single, We Comin, was named the new anthem for the modern Civil Rights movement by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
