How hip-hop, “Malcolm X,” and “Siddhartha” changed my life
At 15, the world was my oyster.
I had Dr. Dre on permanent rotation, a dog-eared copy of Siddhartha was my pocket guide to life, and the film Malcolm X would change me forever.
Now in its 15th year, Grist is where you’ll find me meditating on issues of environmental justice — revealing the chronic effects of pollution and climate change on communities of color and highlighting the people who are fighting for a better future.
But to stay on the path to eco-enlightenment, Grist and I need your support.
