(BROOKLYN, N.Y.) On Friday night, rapper and activist Vic Mensa takes the stage in Prospect Park with poet Aja Monet for the free concert series BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn.

Mensa, who is known for being outspoken and engaged on issues ranging from gun violence to racial justice to mental health, will be joined by Monet for a night celebrating the power of art to make sustainable change.

Monet, a Brooklyn native, was awarded the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Award for Poetry for her cultural organizing work in South Florida in 2019.

The free entertainment continues on Saturday with rock band Crumb and an opening performance by Slauson Malone 1.

Doors for both shows are at 6:30 p.m. and the shows start at 7:30 p.m. at the Lena Horne Bandshell.

Tickets to the shows are free, but RSVP is encouraged as entry is first-come, first-served.
