The show is scheduled for November 27 at ACL Live. Tickets will set you back $52-$152 and go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

Earlier this year, Hill hosted the Diaspora Calling! Festival in Brooklyn. The event featured a variety of artists representing different parts of the African diaspora and included performances from Machel Montano of Trinidad, Stephen “Ragga” Marley of Jamaica and Stonebwoy of Ghana.

For the touring shows Hill promises each show will include special guest performances.

“The MLH Caravan allows me to continue the theme of unity and celebration of the many facets of cultural and artistic beauty throughout the African diaspora while on tour this summer and fall,” Hill said in a statement on her website. “In these days of tension, tumult and transition, an exchange of this kind can yield direction, expression, understanding and empowerment as well as connection, self Love and appreciation that hopefully overflows into our respective communities.”
