YouTube: Damion X UNPLUGGED
Born in Alabama, Damion moved to California in 2010 shortly after being expelled from high school. The move was, not only to leave a poverty stricken area with little to no opportunities, but more importantly to step outside of his comfort zone to find out who he really was, and what he was truly capable of in his life.
Damion is a former Board member of the San Francisco State University Black Student Union, and former Co-President of the BSU at Santa Rosa Junior College. In 2013, he led an initiative to re-establish the Black Student Union that had been dormant for over 10yrs. The BSU went on to build a classroom in Tanzania, Africa after raising over $18,000 in two semesters at SRJC. In his last year, Damion would later develop a free food program for financially stricken student athletes.
Damion is currently at San Francisco State University completing a double-major in Africana Studies and Media Studies. One of his goals is to weaponize Hip-Hop, and utilize it to uplift, empower, and inspire marginalized people in general, but Black and Brown youth in particular.
You can find Damion's music on all digital platforms under his name Damion Square.

Kiss My Black Arts
We are a well-organized community of artists who teach and demonstrate aspects of cultural expression through our art. We, the collective, should work together to have an overall agenda and help other artists sell their work. We provide education within the collective. We do not practice racism or sexism. We are not a single voice community. We produce art that fosters freedom of expression and speech to the push for social reform and demonstrate equitable sustainability. We exemplify each other in all areas of creativity.
We make art that doesn’t rely on supremacy or capitalism to exist.
We Create art that articulates the realities of living in an unjust society. We Create art that envisions liberty for the unjust. We dismiss the parameters of defining creativity. We are artists that dismantle all stereotypes. We organize art shows and creative projects in our hoods.
