in revolutionary Zapatista lands in Chiapas, Mexico for the 20th anniversary of their uprising. Dude is still reppin with his powerful art, still making prints, and still upholding the legacy here and abroad. Building and throwing down with him was one of the richest weeks of my life.

I'm waiting to see it, but I'm assuming it's only showing at Sundance for now

I always wondered if anybody took the time to trace the bloodlines of known clansmen

and then see where they've integrated into society today

sort of a reverse finding your roots

so and so was grand wizard, blah blah blah

then find his great grandson in present day working for the local PD

caught this interview last week

waiting on the Garvey flick from netflix
