PATH is a Miami-based 501(c )3 organization that uses Hip Hop culture to advance scholarship (academic achievement), community involvement, leadership and entrepreneurship in underserved communities. This series features most of the students of the 2016 summer session. These kids killed it at the closing cypher, and I hope these photos do their individual character and talents justice. Big ups to all PATH staff, volunteers and students past, present and future. Can’t wait to see what next year’s anniversary jam is gonna look like. Visit www.pathtohiphop.org for more info.

2016.10.27 | Macaya Gallery Presents: American Banned | Works by Chor Boogie, Ashley Reid and Stuart Sheldon

*Three renowned contemporary artists, Chor Boogie, Stuart Sheldon, and Ashley Reid, present uncompromising visual political and social commentary in American Banned. Essentially nonpartisan, the collective body of work provokes political discourse, spurs citizens to participate in the political process, and examines systemic violence, racism, and oppression. *Exhibition info taken from the Macaya Gallery
