A Cultural Arts and Equity Hip-Hop Series event
Teresita ‘Lah Tere’ Ayala is a humanitarian, organizer, activist, emcee, songstress, proud BBW and a visionary speaker for the 21st Century. The Afro-Antillean/Puerto Rican/Boricua activist grew up in Chicago's historic Puerto Rican community of Humboldt Park near the famed Paseo Boricua. She is the first generation born on the mainland, and the daughter of revolutionary educators and survivors of Chicago's notorious ghettos.
Through her political and global activism, Lah Tere has worked to carve her own niche outside of the commercial hip-hop industry and focused on building communities from within. As an emcee, she uses hip-hop as a didactic tool as well as an emotional release technique for individual and communal healing.
