Professor of Hip Hop

Samuel Aguiar Iniguez teaches English at Cosumnes River College in Sacramento. Last night at the Broiler Steakhouse his was one of many passionate voices invited by WESTAF to speak out on what we need to know about multicultural communities and the arts. Samuel is an intense young man whose ode to Hip Hop is captured on the following audio, without the usual Pod Chronicles intro and sign-off. Conversations about art among people of color always seem to be a different animal than what I'm used to. Art becomes a matter of life and death, of individuals and peoples willing to work relentlessly and to risk anything to find their authentic voices in the face of very good reasons to stay silent.
