Librotraficante Awarded For Fighting Censorship
Huffington Post - about 5 years
Sometimes fighting the law will win you an award. The activist group known as “Librotraficante” -- Spanish for “book smuggler” -- won the 2012 Downs Intellectual Freedom Award, according to a release from the iSchool at Illinois. “Librotraficante, a movement led by Tony Diaz, is being recognized for its efforts to oppose the censorship of ethnic and cultural studies materials in Arizona,” the release says. Author Tony Diaz, journalist Liana Lisa Lopez and multimedia artist Bryan Parras banned together to form Librotraficante to combat the removal of Latino literature from Tucson public schools.

The death of Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes 10 years later: She was our voice to the world
The Grio - almost 6 years
CLUTCH - Left-Eye's spontaneity, quirkiness, guts and soul inspired a generation of young women to boldly claim their own femininity... Lopes was especially significant to the creative landscape of our generation. She was the epitome of crazy, long before Lil' Kim, Missy Elliott, Nicki Minaj or Lady Gaga stepped on the scene. Lopes used multiple methods to speak out against injustice. Her Story, from their debut album, was our first indication that TLC was about opening up conversations on social issues. They wrote the song as a response to the 1987 case of Tawana Brawley, a 15 year old black girl from New York who accused six white men, some of whom were police officers, of rape. Lopes wrote: "Yo, this is a story of a male-female threat to society... being misjudged and not respected for what we are". Her hardcore female-empowering messages were some of Hip Hop's finest activist statements. She forged a ground with her lyrics which aligned her with pioneering f...

Losing Left Eye - Lisa Lopes
Clash - almost 6 years
Ten years ago this month the music industry lost one of it’s brightest stars: Lisa Lopes. Daring, candid, vibrant and unapologetic; Lisa ‘Left-Eye’ Lopes was the ‘Crazy’ to Chilli’s ‘Sexy’ and T-Boz’s ‘Cool’ in the Atlantic R&B girl-group that would go on to conquer the music charts and change the way women were seen in a male dominated industry. As the world was still mourning the loss of R&B superstar Aaliyah in the summer of 2001, initial reactions to the news of the tragic death of ‘Left-Eye’ in Honduras, Central America, was that of disbelief. Although Lisa’s passing was felt the world over by the millions of fans she had gathered over the ten years she had spent in the group TLC, for Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins and Rozanda ‘Chilli’ Thomas the loss was inconceivable. When speaking to the remaining members of the group last year, they described how initially they believed the news of her death was just another of Lisa’s many ‘practical jokes’. “Not that long ...
