Live Blog #2

We’re having this amazing and once in a lifetime opportunity to have Caye, Black Mama, Taki Amaru, and Jeka Libre perform before our eyes. They are rapping and speaking so loudly with words that would otherwise make you feel uncomfortable. They rap about young girls getting raped and molested, they speak about abortions and how disgusting men have been. They are speaking words into existence. Words that have been silenced by men and society and those who constantly tell us to be quiet because we are being “lloranas.” They are empowering us with their words, their pain and their energies.
