"Being born in 1974 set me on a course to come of age as a person cloaked in the international phenomenon that Afrika Bambaataa would name Hip-hop. Its infectious elements of graf writin’, dee-jayin’, breakin’, emceein’, and knowledge called me, initiated me and sent me back out into the world to live its truth." - - Lasana Hotep
Lasana Omar Hotep is as committed to people of African ancestry as one can imagine. His dedication is evidenced in his writing, his wit, and his wide array of projects - ranging from media, business, and education. When combined, Hotep's body of work provides a refreshingly informed perspective on Black history, culture, and politics. Today, we'll focus on his writing projects, his love of hip hop, and his rather unique vision of Spike Lee's film as they relate to masculinity.
