Dave Chappelle took to the outdoor stage with a cigarette, journal, and red solo cup to perform a social distanced concert. A man known for getting on stage and talking at length had just 27 minutes packed full of insight into the racially fueled wave of protest taking over the streets of America.

'8:46' was filmed in Yellow Springs, Ohio, near his home and for his neighbors.

While Chappelle has polarized in the past, his well informed voice at a time like this is what so many crave.

"Normally I wouldn't show you something so unrefined, I hope you understand."

Powerful stuff.
