DOWNTOWN — This morning tons of internet users were surprised to discover that a new Public Enemy / Bernie Sanders poster was legit- at first, many had commented, they thought it was meme art.

It’s true: the hip-hop pioneers are set to perform at a rally for Bernie Sanders, at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Sunday, March 1.

Public Enemy have always been politically outspoken through their music and interviews. Their iconic 1988 track “Fight the Power” was famously featured in the opening sequence to Spike Lee’s “Do The Right Thing,” in which Rosie Perez rocks out with a fierceness some of us could only dream of.

The free concert and political rally- takes place just two days before Super Tuesday, when 14 states including California hold primary elections.

Other special guests include comedian Sarah Silverman and beloved actor Dick Van Dyke. Ohio State Senator Nina Turner, seen by many of Bernie’s supporters to be his likely running mate, is expected to be in attendance as well: she tweeted the poster art with a short and sweet “Thank you @MrChuckD for your support of our campaign! #BernieBruh #Bernie2020 #BigUs

Another surprising endorsement made in a recent announcement was Boots Riley, a Union Activist and Director of the film “Sorry to Bother You” who says he will be voting for the first time for the Vermont Senator, who is leading in polls and popular vote so far.

Sunday, March 1, Los Angeles Convention Center, South Hall, S Figueroa StLos Angeles, CA 90015

Doors open at 3:00 p.m., the event starts at 5:00 p.m.

“If you vote-by-mail,” the event page states, “be sure to bring your ballot with you so we can cast our votes for Bernie together before the rally kicks off.”
