Coming Attractions: Diamonds in the Rough

In these United States, hip hop — and especially rap — is blamed for so many of our nation's ills.

In a nation like Uganda, it's a completely different story.

Keep your eyes peeled for the Subterranean Network's recent documentary, Diamonds in the Rough: The Bataka Revolution, which features the members of Bataka Squad and their mission to educate the world about their nation's lethal civil war and living under the thumb of the Musoveni regime. The film has been making the festival rounds, so catch it if you can.
