Freedom Fighter Rosa Clemente speaking at Winston Salem State University

On today’s program, we hear from Rosa Clemente. She’s a community organizer, freelance journalist and Hip Hop activist. In 2008, Rosa Clemente along with Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, became the first women of color ticket in American History. Born and raised in South Bronx, NY, Rosa Clemente has been a community organizer and a featured keynote speaker, panelist, and political commentator for over 20 years.

Currently, Rosa Clemente is at work on her first book: When a Puerto Rican Woman Ran for Vice President and Nobody Knew Her Name. And today on Hard Knock we’re pleased to have the opportunity to present a talk featuring Rosa Clemente speaking at Winston Salem State University.
