    SAL TRAN

    Today, the last day of Mental Health Awareness month, I’m proud to announce the launch of a new video series on our channel titled RHAPSODY IN ALCHEMY, an intimate peek into the lives of artists with lived mental health experience. This first video, winner of April’s Art With Impact mental health film competition, features an extraordinary filmmaker named Sal Tran who reflects on staying grounded and empowered through battles with suicidal depression and PTSD.

    HIP HOP FOR CHANGE

    “We get a depiction of young brown and black people in the media that sets us up for failure. Our kids are getting ideals that they can never live up to instead of having an accessible form of expression that they can use to find out who they are… these cultural forms of expression are so necessary for us to have for ourselves as a community that it is a travesty to say the least what these corporations have done with the platform for our culture. So that’s what Hip Hop For Change is bringing back.”
