David ‘Olmeca’ Barragan is an artist/activist/educator hailing from Los Angeles, California. A son of immigrants, he is one of the few artists who broke ground as an artist and advocate for human rights. His unique writing talent in both English and Spanish is one that Olmeca has brilliantly mastered. In doing so, he has gained the attention of hip-hop and Latin Alternative audiences. His story and community efforts have earned him the respect from professors, community organizations, and social justice dignitaries like Dolores Huerta, Luis J. Rodriguez, Naomi Klein, and Emery Douglas.
