Talking About Disability at the Club | J.A. Strub | TEDxCUNY

How does music help us see past other people's differences and disabilities? Join J.A. Strub as he describes how hip-hop makes us better citizens and performs songs by hip-hop artist Fetty Wap.

J. A. Strub is a student of economics at Hunter College. He is currently working on bringing Participatory Budgeting, a program by which members of a community can choose how to spend a portion of a budget, to campuses at the City University of New York. J.A. performs with life long musical partners, Michael Schuler and Johnnie Luca, whose new band "Storytellers" is expected to release a debut recording in 2016.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
