So at the Yale's Black Solidarity Conference, Chichi and I got the chance to meet a very intelligent and passionate young woman named Menda Franchise Francois. Impressed by her comments on the media, its portrayal of Black people, and her opinion about creating a dichotomy between "Niggers" and Black Folks, Chichi and I knew we needed to switch contact info with her.
With her group, 3XL, Menda takes on a wide variety of topics, basing it all from a feminist viewpoint.
From L to R: Shayna Israel, Nikki Lopez, Menda Franchise Francois
Can They Spit? Hell Yeah they can, check the lyrics on Real Hip-Hop which pays homage to their influences:
Here's an article about the trio. Peep the group's myspace page, http://www.myspace.com/3xaladycrew. Menda and her trio mates Shayna Israel and Nikki Lopez have a tremendous amount of talent and potential, and you may see them here for a conference in the future.
