A T-Shirt That Grow Independent Radio in the US, While Supporting an Artist in Colombia- (Ends April 11)
In 2013, Critical Reboot was founded as a way to connect grassroots organizers, activist artists and people with solutions or "solutionistas", through reliable news, critical analysis and tool driven discussions. The Critical Reboot radio program is heard on over 20 stations throughout the US and around the world online and on satellite radio. With the support of the Global Block Foundation, we are thrilled to begin our "Marketplace" section with a special limited edition t-shirt designed by Colombian graffiti artist and member of the Global Block Network, Hera Rayo. The aim of the "Marketplace" is to produce collaborative support projects that connect talented socially conscious artists to the global economy. A portion of the proceeds of every "Marketplace" item sold will go to supporting the work of the collaborating artists. www.criticalreboot.com

Coming Fall 2014 -The Organic Globalizer: Hip Hop, Political Development, and Movement Culture,... The Book!
The Organic Globalizer is a collection of critical essays which takes the position that hip-hop holds political significance through an understanding of its ability to at once raise cultural awareness, expand civil society’s focus on social and economic justice through institution building, and engage in political activism and participation. Collectively, the essays assert hip hop’s importance as an “organic globalizer:” no matter its pervasiveness or reach around the world, hip-hop ultimately remains a grassroots phenomenon that is born of the community from which it permeates. Hip hop, then, holds promise through three separate but related avenues: (1) through cultural awareness and identification/recognition of voices of marginalized communities through music and art; (2) through social creation and the institutionalization of independent alternative institutions and non-profit organizations in civil society geared toward social and economic justice; and (3) through political activism and participation in which demands are articulated and made on the state.
