Che “Rhymefest” Smith discusses how citizens can use positions of leverage to address issues of police brutality, systematic biases, and lack of services. As a writer, artist, activist, political organizer and teacher, Che has cracked glass ceilings and shattered negative stereotypes about hip-hop. Among other awards, he won a Grammy for co-writing “Jesus Walks” with Kanye West and an Academy Award for his work on the song “Glory,” featured in the film Selma.
