Mos Def (also known by the stage name of Yasiin Bey) has been confirmed for the 2013 Busboys and Poets inaugural Peace Ball, dubbed Voices of Hope and Resistance, which will be taking place this January on the 20th. Based in Washington, DC, this certified B Corporation is a setting for many, many community events. It's a restaurant and cafe, a bar, a book shop, and a performance venue. What it does more than anything, however, is bring people together through a commitment to social justice and peace.
And it's popular. Busboys and Poets currently has over 30,000 likes on Facebook and over twenty-thousand Twitter followers. Good food, good discussion, good reads, good art and acts like Mos Def make for good business -- in every sense of the word.
