Do what must be done; discover your humanity and your love in revolution.”

The Responses To Krip-Hop's Track SSI Dollarz By Men In San Bruno Jail

Back in the late 90's I and Lisa Tiny Gray-Garcia​ had the honor to present our work in San Bruno jail.  In July of 2017 I had another opportunity to present  my work, this time, Krip-Hop Nation under Poetry For the People's teacher Amalia Alvarez​.
