TED Talk - How rap saves lives

Raegan Sealy presents a daring account of trauma and healing as she waxes poetic on the power of rap. Through lyrical music, she confronts privilege, violence, race and the discomfort of borrowing from a culture that is not her own, while discovering a community that is.
