Within the opening remarks of Guatemalan activist, poet and hip-hop musician Rebeca Lane's talk Tuesday afternoon in Tillet Hall, she gave her sharp perspective on the presence of migrant caravans in the modern day, and spliced the issue together with current perils in her homeland of Guatemala.

Throughout its history, America has amended its constitution and shifted its political direction to move toward the fulfillment of its commitment to freedom and democracy, and it is time to shift once more.
Every year, there’s a song that just seems to encapsulate the cultural moment so well that it almost feels scripted, too good to be true. Last year Childish Gambino’s “This Is America,” inhabited that space, in large part due to its provocative, spellbinding video. With too many interpretations to count, the themes present in the cryptic, meticulous short film propelled the fairly simple song to both Record and Song of the Year honors at the Grammy Awards this past February.
