I have been invited to be one of the featured speakers at the 6th Annual International Human Rights Film Festival held in New Orleans, Louisiana March 26 – April 5. This is a festival with a mission. Founded by New Orleans artists and activists, they are dedicated to nurturing the cityâ€™s human rights community, supporting the work of local organizers and organizations involved in these struggles, and providing a forum for artistic expression of local and international issues.
I am scheduled to speak on Friday, March 27 at the Liberation Hip-Hop Concert that is headlined by Wise Intelligent of the legendary Poor Righteous Teachers! Then I will be speaking at the “No More Killings in Our Name” rally on Sunday, March 29 surrounding Middle East justice and Palestine liberation.
I will also be supporting the premiere of the I AM Sean Bell, black boys speak documentary directed by Stacey Muhammad.
Don’t wait….Let’s Be the Change.
