In today’s episode of the Solecast I speak with Sima Lee. Sima Lee is a truly revolutionary artist who was raised on Black Panther-eque / Black Nationalist communities of self-defense and mutual aid.

Her entire life has been spent making rap music and doing revolutionary organizing.  I discovered her music through submedia’s Trouble documentary on Hip-Hop, check it out here to learn more about her and other radical rap artists.  In this interview we discuss:

  • Her upbringing and how she came to anarchism
  • The ideas of the maroon communities and how it informs her work
  • Her work at the maroon House in DC and the mutual aid practices they employ in the community
  • The importance of self defense and building lasting power beyond mobilizations
  • How to create stronger ties between (mostly) white anarchists and communities of color
  • Her new album “Trap Liberation Army
