Hip-Hop Voices

This award-winning project was an offshoot of a fellowship from the Annenberg Institute for Justice and Journalism at the University of Southern California. Photographer John L. White, a Racial Justice Fellow, and I documented how several South Florida rap artists explore racism and poverty in their work.

Over several months, we followed the artists as they struggled to address important issues through an increasingly commercial genre. The project won the 2007 Florida Society of Newspaper Editors Special Sections category.
