The legendary rap group Public Enemy is in D.C. to raise awareness about homeless youth. The first stop for the band was the Sasha Bruce House, a facility for homeless teens in Northeast D.C. They helped deliver an early Thanksgiving dinner to the 30 or so teens that stay there.

After the dinner, Public Enemy headed to Foggy Bottom in downtown D.C., where they hopped on to the back of a flatbed truck and rocked out. The truck rolled through the streets. They later performed a concert George Washington University.

Proceeds from the night will go to Sasha Bruce.
