Hip Hop and Social Justice with Olmeca

Sharing personal stories as a Hip Hop artist, activist, and scholar, Olmeca examines U.S. art, culture, and politics as they relate to marginalized communities and low-income families with access barriers. With humor, sincerity, and art, he examines the notion of identity while challenging the idea of “belonging” and what it means to “be” and “become” “American.” Olmeca shares his experiences on being a first generation U.S born, homelessness, his motivation for becoming a community activist, and eventually living in the jungles of Chiapas.
