Interview: Carlos Miller- Photography is not a Crime

From the dawn of its existence, HipHop has been nearly inseparable from a struggle for social and economic justice. Like the Panthers who defied corrupt law enforcement in order to better their community, HipHop continued the fight against a system that vilified and punished people for standing up for their rights. Today Carlos Miller continues that fight as a photojournalist, citizen-activist and owner/author of the blog Photography is not a Crime (PINAC). Carlos came through the studio to talk about photography and technology as a weapon for asserting our rights and how the people can keep our leaders accountable to US.
