Here I am, (center, with poncho) along with brothers of La Unidad Latina/ Lambda Upsilon Lambda fraternity Inc. and my own sisters of Sigma Lambda Upsilon/ Señoritas Latinas Unidas Sorority, Inc. Both organizations sponsored a slide lecture at the University of Maryland in September of 2004.
M archers in the Now More Than Ever Rally organized by the Black Caucus at Penn State, Sept. 2004. I was invited as one of the rally speakers and I also facilitated a workshop on the role of the arts in the struggle. These annual rallies bring to light the struggles of black students on campus.

L-R: Albizoo (guitarist), Joseph (drummer) and Not4Prophet (vocalist) of Ricanstruction. They hooked a sister up(yours truly) with a special acoustic performance at the Terraza opening. Check out their new cd Love+Revolution, now in stores. For more info: www.ricanstruction.net.
