NightChain Monday with Ander Other at Cause.

Grip’s debut video “1 Hustler” goin’ hard, reppin’ Liberia & Minnesota. Respect to Dodi Phy (R.I.P.)!

Remembering the man Cesar Chavez from the grapevines, capital steps, continuing the legacy and to Hollywood’s big screen.
As a little Puerto Rican girl raised in Minnesota’s first Latino community (prodominantly Mexican) on St. Paul’s Westside, I can recall the first moment I ever cherished and shouted the famous Cesar Chavez quote ”Si Se Puede!”  I was in my PM-Kindergarden classroom at St. Matthew’s School on 497 Humboldt Avenue in 1992.  I was drawing my weekly journal assignment, in which that week the bold letters on the chalkboard asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”  
I was on a mission to share and showcase my answer to my teacher Mrs Dereburger.  I remember I was seated by my childhood amigos Carlos Luis Mariani and DeMetrius Regino as we ate our fruit snacks and shared crayons out of the same box.  Mrs. Dereburger passed by us to see our work.   I held my colorful illustration with pride and said, “Look Mrs. Dereburger, I want to be a leader for my community, you know like the president, but more like my mom and Cesar Chavez!” - Maria Isa
