Go Go music in Washington DC is under attack by gentrification. Recent events have led long-time residents to protect the musical identity of DC with the #DontMuteDC movement. So the LMC speaks with freelance writer Natalie Hopkinson about the Latin roots of Go Go music and the ongoing struggle to keep Go Go alive in DC. Natalie Hopkinson is also the author of, “Go Go Live: The Musical Life and Death of a Chocolate City.”
In part 3 of our Undocumented and LGBTQ series, the LMC spends the hour with Trans activist Jennicet Gutierrez to discuss the case of Roxsana Hernandez plus more. She is also the community organizer and advocate for Familia TQLM in Los Angeles.
The LMC wraps up 2018 by spending the hour with Julio Ricardo Varela on a special joint episode with Latino Rebels Radio. We review the highs and lows of 2018 for the Latino diaspora and what it all means as the struggle for social justice continues in 2019.
