“Migration is beautiful, and it is inevitable”


Oakland artist and activist Favianna Rodriguez is the narrator of the new video series Migration Is Beautiful.

The films feature artists and advocates and their plights in fighting for the dignity and rights of immigrants. Rodriguez not only focuses on the political aspect of immigration reform but the cultural one as well, and how immigrant writing, art, graffiti and performance are all prime facets of US culture as a whole.
