Last week, Hands Up United's Tef Poe traveled to London to sit in on BBC's chart topping (as in 225 million people) HARDtalk. A hard hitting interview style show, Tef, short for Teflon Poet, answered questions about social media, Oprah, and violence in Ferguson. The show airs Wednesday, Feb 18th. We'll be sure to post an embed video as soon as we get it.
Of course, like any trip he takes, Tef didn't just go to meet with press. The St. Louis representative also had an extensive schedule that saw him meeting with activist groups like Stand Up to Racism, Occupy London, Unite Against Fascism, Rainbow Coalition Against Racism, Love Music Hate Racism, United Friends and Family and the London Black Revolutionaries.
Look for this Hands Up United representative to be giving us further updates about his trip across the pond. And who knows, he might just be headed back there sooner than later.
Tef Poe linked up with Channel 4's legendary Jon Snow who recently spoke out against the attacks in Gaza. Jon linked Tef with a show in Brixton, apparently Jon has been a long time fan of Tef's music.
