I was introduced to Maliza via Ana when she did a guest feature on Julieta Venegas song “Para Mi”. Really great to hear and see some of the history of this group and hip hop from Chile.

Keepers of The Game Documentary


 Great film, just watched this. A great story about sports, women’s empowerment, self confidence, colonization, and Native American traditions. I definitely recommend watching it!

Character 111-Eddie (Cease fire)

Eddie is one of many guys who lived, took life,  is giving back life, and survived “the life” (violence) in Chicago where hundreds have died yearly. I re-watched the ITVS documentary “The Interrupters” about a team of Black and Latino ex-gang members and cats called “Ceasefire” who lived the life and are now acting as agents of change. They find situations where there is evidence of long standing beefs, an insult, a stare, a look, anything that could set it off-and they step in. I don’t claim to have a complete understanding of “Ceasefire”, but what they and so many others have been doing to stop us from killing each other is inspiring. Don’t let anyone tell you people of color ain’t out there trying to stop the violence; that we only get upset when a cop murders. It’s not true.
