12.28.2014 – Best of 2014: Identity – Generation Justice

Whether it’s discovering your identity or reclaiming your identity, knowing who you are and where you come from is empowering. We’ve compiled our best segments from 2014 that focus on identity. I Self Devine and Brother Ali, two powerful hip hop artists, discuss how identity is expressed through music and hip hop. To help us understand why Chicano Studies was banned in some Arizona schools, we spoke with Dr. Augustine Romero. We’ll also hear a montage of New Mexican Chican@s talking about their identity. And, finally, we hear from participants at the 2014 Gathering of Nations about their Indigenous identity.
