Paul Cobb donated $100.00 for the BAM Fest. He suggests 100 people donate between $100.00 and $500.00 for BAM so we can do for self. He will put the pic of all who donate in the Oakland Post. We are looking for 99 people of good will who believe in BAM. FYI, Paul Cobb is a Garveyite, his father and grandfather were Garveyites. I am a Garveyite! As they say in Houston, TX, "You better ax somebody!"
If you are willing to donate any amount, please call Marvin X, 510-200-4164. BAM must be a community supported project. The original Black Arts Repertory Theatre failed in Harlem when grant funds were cut off. BAM must be independent although we will accept funds but will not compromise our revolutionary values and goals, the freedom of our people.
Thank you for your $100.00: Paul Cobb, Elnora T. Webb, Delores Nochi, Leon and Carolyn Teasley, Dr. Ayodele Nzinga, Emanuel and Doris Easley, Nikki Giovanni.
