SATURDAY | MARCH 18, 2006 | 6PM | FREE | BRICK BY BRICK: ORGANIZING THE GRASSROOTS WITH ARTS & ACTIVISM
A Conversation with Billy "Upski" Wimsatt (League of Pissed Off Voters), Piper Anderson (The Blackout Arts Collective) and Javon Johnson (Playwright).
Moderated by Clyde Valentin (Hip-Hop Theater Festival)
In today’s climate, where corporate control of media dominates the local and national debate around current events, the struggle of ordinary, yet exceptional Americans fighting for meaningful causes goes unsung and too often, unheard. Whether the focus is on ending the "war on terror", addressing global human rights issues, immigration advocacy, environmental justice, education reform or the prison industrial complex, local and state legislative victories are happening and young people are being engaged creatively around the issues that affect them. So take some time to learn about two exceptional people, who represent two exceptional organizations as they converse with one exceptional playwright on why and how they they fight the good fight.
