Tending to civic duty, comedian Dave Chappelle dropped into a Yellow Spring, Ohio, city council meeting last week, using his star power to continue dialogue on police violence.
Though Chappelle was born in Washington, D.C., he’s long made his home in the sleepy, liberal college town, where his father was a professor at Antioch College.
Last New Year’s Eve, two black men were tased by Yellow Springs police officers, causing tremendous concern for villagers. As of late, fearing police aggression has become a significant issue locally.
After the national coverage, including a New York Times piece, Chappelle told the assembly: “Given what the culture of our town is, the council has tremendous opportunity to leader in progressive law enforcement.”
Watch the comedian’s address below.
