“We exist because we are a community organization”: 1Hood Media reflects on the “dope” honor of being named a Pittsburgh Cultural Treasure


Urban Media Today and Kiki Brown’s What’s Good in Your Hood are excited to continue highlighting the Heinz Endowment Cultural Treasure Initiative Award Winners. Like Heinz, we are inspired by each organization’s work and commitment to Black creativity and cultural legacy. For our latest feature, Kiki spoke with Farooq Al-Said, Director of Operations of 1Hood Media. 1Hood Media is a collective of socially conscious artists and activists who utilize art as a means of raising awareness about social justice matters affecting people around the world.
