Janelle Monáe on the 2018 election and the future

Oct 16, 2018

Janelle Monáe calls upon people to vote and explains that she's hopeful that people can band together to create a better future.

Watch the full talk here.

In Dirty Computer, the album and “emotion picture” that Rolling Stone called “a sci-fi masterpiece,” Janelle Monáe makes a shrewd commentary on present-day America.

Join the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, performer, producer, activist, and actress for a riveting and timely conversation about this remarkable work—and the dystopian themes that are so relevant to all our experience today.

Monáe will also discuss Fem the Future, the initiative she launched in 2016, to create more opportunities to advance the awareness, inclusion, and opportunities for women and those who identify as women through music, arts, mentorship, and education; and she’ll share news about upcoming projects like her work with Robert Zemeckis in the new film, Welcome to Marwen.
