Hector, Freedom Mic on Immigration MIC!

Hector, Freedom Mic on Immigration MIC!

Originally from the Dominican Republic and part of the first Dominican families in Harlem, Hector is all-in on activism and 'getting people of the matrix'; but did you know as a young boy he was a gold medal winning gymnast, in high school he was about to graduate valedictorian, and made Boston University's basketball team?

We talk about his activism origins, the dangers of existing under a 'slave mentality', how non-profits sometimes create an environment forcing activists to 'kiss ass', his very real experiences with mental health and self-harm, and his current Freedom Mic live events where he's working to showcase artists that don't have real opportunities to shine!

Hector, thank you so much for all the work you do, thanks for supporting the show since the beginning, let's get free for real!
