20 Years of Work, Looking Back From 1996 Up To Today
As Poor Magazine & Krip-Hop Nation celebrate their anniversay, Poor Magazine- 21 years & Krip-Hop Nation - 10 years, I thought it was a great time to look back of my work in the Bay Area since 1996. I moved from CT/NY to SF, CA in 1991. This is not to blow air in my head but to take time to track my work and give Black/Brown disabled youth a piece of plateform and mirror to build on or to make their own way.
Before I get to the list, as you will see I have strong ties to Poor Magazine. Please read about Poor Magazine 21st anniversary beneefit:
