Marvin X is calling all members of the Black Arts Movement Poet's Choir and Arkestra to join him at the Silence the Noise Rally, 12th and Adeline, West Oakland, Saturday, November 8, 2015, 10AM
Marvin X will perform at the Silence the Noise rally on Saturday at the church, 12th and Adeline, West Oakland. The BAM Choir and Arkestra should arrive by 10AM and plan to perform ASAP. We should also help spread the word about the establishment of the Black Arts Movement Cultural and Economic District, along the 14th Street corridor, downtown Oakland.
If you haven't, please sign the online petition.
All conscious artists should be present, especially those who consider themselves in the tradition of Ancestor Paul Roberson, the Artistic Freedom Fighter!
In honor of Paul, we are artistic freedom fighters as well! We dedicate our art to the freedom of our people! We are not artists for arts sake in the White Supremacy tradition of Europe, but we are artists who function in harmony with our people who are oppressed and thus our primary and essential duty is to join with them in struggle for freedom, justice and equality. Somebody say Ache!
