Wanda Sabir calls for libations to the African Ancestors of the Middle Passage

Greetings Everyone:

It's that time of the year again, International Libations for the African Ancestors of the Middle Passage. This is our 9th year participating with others nationally and internationally. We all pour libations at exactly the same time.

If you are not busy, I'd like to invite you to the Libations for the Ancestors on Saturday in Oakland.
Visit our website for the details. If you can't make it to Oakland, then pour libations where you are.

When: Sat., June 13, 9:00am – 9:30am
Where: Lake Merritt, Oakland, CA, USA
Description: Lake Merritt in Oakland - across from the Merritt Bakery where the fountain is: E-18th Street at Lakeshore Drive)
If you cannot make it to Lake Merritt, pour libations where you are. If you can come, please bring drums, a dance to share, songs, poems, prayers, words of the ancestors to share (smile). Water is also helpful. We pour at 9 AM exactly.
Save the DATE: October 11, 2015, the 20th Annual Maafa Commemoration. We can use help. Let me know if you are interested. We need help fundraising (direct mail, grant writing, donor solicitation), public relations, programming support (venues and follow-up), transportation.

The Berkeley World Music Festival is also Saturday all day and the Ethnic Dance Festival continues in San Francisco. Visit (smile).

Peace and Blessings,

Wanda Sabir
