RETHINKING POWER & RESISTANCE ATX 2012

October 16th, 2012 | Category: Community,Events,Hip Hop Culture

Our first call of duty once in Austin, TX was to come together for the ALL WOMEN IN HIP HOP ROUND TABLE. A panel discussion at the Mexican American Cultural Arts Center on October 5th 2012. We opened up and created a space to share our stories, thoughts, and ideas about what ┬á“Rethinking Power & Resistance Gender & Human Rights” is all about. It was a big topic to cover but we rocked it! It got pretty emotional at times because we shared a personal part of how we came to be who we are. From our ancestry, our mothers, our womanhood, and the relationship we each have with the world. In order to connect with folks we had to get raw,┬áregardless┬áof the academic setting we were in. If we were going to reach people with our powerful voices we had to speak from the heart about the ills of our journey here. It was DOPE panel discussion. (((Inspired))) ┬áand honored to have shared the space with such wonderful human beings. I feel empowered to continue my journey, and down with all of you to do “the work” that is necessary in our communities. THANK YOU #DOPE WOMEN.
