In this episode we speak with Montu Miller about the intersections among hip hop, racism and politics.
William Miller, more affectionately known as Montu, is the Ambassador of the Athens HipHop Community, co-founder/chief operating officer for ATHfactor-Liberty Entertainment, a dedicated special education paraprofessional (Clarke Central High School), and father of five. He embraces his role as a writer, poet, mentor and community activist. Montu values his mentorship relationships with students and musicians in the community.
Montu's interests range beyond music and extend to other parts of the Athens community. He is an advocate on the Chess & Community Conference board as a community liaison/event planner, Hot Corner Festival steering committee/stage manager. The Athens HipHop movement that Montu helps lead has a variety of education, community, and after-school programs. Through this movement, motivational speakers and trained mentors help guide students within the schools and often on a daily basis.
Overall Montu is an organic intellectual, a revolutionary, and a community leader. Even with these titles, Montu's mission is to convey to others that he will never stand idly by when so much needs to be done.
