Across the globe, the hxstory of colonization has resulted in the exploitation of indigenous cultures, the erasure of hxstory, and the denial of second class narratives. The effects of colonization continue to permeate our society, our politics, and our art --- but art is also our weapon in this war.
For centuries, our ancestors used music, song, art preserve the stories of our culture. Music, especially, has been a way for people of color to speak truth to power, to let our narratives take center stage.
