This week is a short list but there's a documentary in there and a TED panel interview....meaty. Have a wonderful weekend!
Los Punks follows the backyard Latino punk scene in East L.A. and South Central L.A. From the tight knit community to the depth of the main characters' stories to resilient individuals like 15 year old promoter April, even if you don't love punk you'll be drawn to the people behind the music. (Bonus: There's an all female band named Las Cochinas. How can you not love that!?)
"How many of you heard that saying that leadership is lonely? It doesn't have to be...It's really easy to be a leader when everybody likes you. But it's hard to be a leader when you have to make hard choices." Start at 9:00 for some real talk about leadership and leaders.

For the Latinas among us, Bella Doña makes some hilarious tees, including a "Chingona AF" crop top I'll never wear but would buy just for the sentiment. Latino/a or not, consider buying gifts from these Latino-owned businesses for the holiday season.
