Episode one logo Episode One: Introducing Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls

This is an Episodic show. You can listen to it in any order, but episode one is always a great place to start.

Full Episode description

Rigoberta Menchú Tum is an Indigenous Mayan human rights activist from Guatemala who grew up in the depths of poverty and in a country ravaged by a decades-long civil war. Despite the many challenges she faced, including the tragic loss of her parents to government-sponsored violence, Rigoberta never gave up on her ideals and always fought for freedom and justice. Her bravery and outspoken activism for the rights of Indigenous, poor, and marginalized peoples led to her receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 1992—the first Indigenous person and ninth woman to do so.

About the Narrator

Rebeca Lane was born in 1984 in Guatemala, a country that like many others in Latin America has experienced dictatorships and forced disappearances. The history that runs through her veins, from the hands of her poignant verses, has made her way into the Latin rap scene as a thoughtful and fun voice with feminist messages.

 

She has published four studio albums and made multiple tours of Latin America, the United States and Europe. Rebeca Lane founded the project Somos Guerreras with which she has traveled the continent doing talks, workshops and presentations making visible the work of women in Hip Hop.

 

At the beginning of 2021 she released her new EP “Llorando diamantes“ and is currently working on her next album.
