My name is Tieshay Skinner, and I am the writer of the Are We Living the Dream? series. My blog will be about the American dream and the many fictitious realities and standards created for our youth, our girls, and our people. Does racism still exist ? Are we facing a modern civil rights movement? Do black lives really matter?What does it mean to be free?
My blog will also discuss the relation between music and the American Dream. What is the role hip hop plays in the fight to live the dream and end racism? What is the role music plays in our self views, views of woman, and the views of black culture? Lastly what role does music play in the civil rights and revolutions of today?
My blog will also discuss body image and the perception of beauty. As well as, the generation gap, and how it can be closed.
