What is American?

America the Beautiful Country

In this edition of Audio Revolution! hosts Gabriel Rima and Savannah Chapman-Martinez take you into the depths of identity: What does it mean to be American? Who gets to be American and who doesn’t? What are the freedoms and privileges American’s have? And, do all American’s have those freedoms? And what does it mean to be both American and another ethnicity and/or culture? These are some of the questions that get explored in this intense and immense Audio Revolution! This show features Carmen Gallegos’ “Quien Soy,” and Audio Cascades answering the questions: what it means to be American and what does American sound like? from students at Monte Del Sol Charter School.  As well, the show showcases two panel discussions, one with the Santa Fe Indian School Spoken Word Team and another with members of our Production Team about White privilege, Hip Hop and Music.  Lastly, the three regular segments will make sure to get you thinking about American Politics and inspire you to use the our relative freedoms to make a difference in all of your communities!
