Peace and love to friends, neighbors, supporters and haters!
Sorry a little late. Spent the weekend speaking and presenting about News Beat, the podcast I produce that uses music and original hip-hop lyrics to amplify important social justice journalism. Thanks to Lehigh University and the Our Digital Humanity conference and the B.I.T.E. / Boys & Girls Club in Jersey City! Great times and GREAT responses (which is nice too.)
If you (or someone you know) are looking for someone to speak about hip-hop music and culture, social justicejournalism or podcasting at your school, conference, festival, kitchen, office cubicle, treehouse.. Click here and let’s talk about talking!
Really good stories this week so let’s get right to them!

BREAK THE NEWS
Hip-hop meets social justice and civil liberties journalism in the hard-hitting, head-nodding podcast, News Beat. In this episode: The U.S. supported El Salvador’s oppressive regime during that country’s civil war, spawning a refugee crisis that led to the birth of MS-13—an American-made gang. (Featuring eye-opening interviews with experts, dope music, and lyrics from Rebel Diaz and Cruz Kontrol from Reyes Del Bajo Mundo)
