Documentary on the Ghetto Brothers

Nice documentary on the formidable culture changers the Ghetto Brothers.  Filmmaker Andreas Vingaard has seven wonderful short films up on his page dedicated to New York City community activists and hip hop pioneers.  I appreciate the editing and the focus on the subjects telling their own stories.

And don’t sleep on the interview with Joseph Mpa who is a black panther organizer who becomes the manager of the Cold Crush Brothers.
