How to make cities better with

Hip-Hop and Poetry

Archie Green is a rapper and a producer who uses hip-hop to de-stigmatize mental illness in black and brown communities.

It’s a cause he has championed after facing his own challenges with depression, and a message that Green’s mental health awareness initiative, Peel Dem Layers Back, works to spread in Cleveland, Ohio.
