The video above is of famous hip hop artist Common (who performed for President Obama last year at the White House) rhyming some love for Los Angeles. I filmed the video at a Grammy after-party at the Conga Room in downtown Los Angeles.
The Grammy's are working on minimizing waste generation from their event and involving themselves in some environmentally sustainable practices to raise awareness about the need for such changes on the global scale. Click here for more information. Also, please be sure to check in soon with green LA girl, where I will be posting an article on the Grammy Greening Summit, which I was able to attend.
Finally, here is a beautiful story on Zocalo Public Square about what Whitney Houston meant to a young lady of color growing up in South Los Angeles.
Peace and enjoy,
