The Black Rep Grp. was started in the 1950's by the late Birel & Nora Vaughn; High School teachers in Vicksburg, Miss.  to celebrate the contributions of Black Artists.  Ruby Dee & Ossie Davis named them the "Keepers of the Culture"  After three aborted attacks by the KKK one which almost harmed their baby daughter Mona; they were forced to flee Mississippi & settle in Berkeley Calif.  Thru persistence & hard work they continued their mission to preserve our culture & founded what is now the Berkeley Black Rep.   

Their revolutionary vision is kept alive today by that three year old baby girl that fled Miss. with them years ago their surviving daughter  Dr. Mona Vaughn Scott.  I am honored to bring my passion peice back to their stage. We hope you can support us.    
" In my humble attempt to use Art as a vehicle for social change. This 
is more than just a show for me; it's a prayer for the forsaken & forgotten.  A story of heart & hope, of broken promises & broken dreams, a love song for the brave & broken-hearted enslaved Africans, who found enough forgiveness in their tortured souls to live, laugh & love. To remind us as we're sharing this brief moment in time on this third Rock from the Sun; to embrace our common humanity with kindness."

Mentally ill Black Woman murdered in NYC by pigs

This just in from Charles Barron!...
NYPD kills a mentally challenged 66 year old grandmother...called a 'good shooting'!...How can shooting down a 66 year old grandmother in anyway be called 'good'!...
Eleanor Bumphers all over again...
Stay in the streets yg people!...
And o yes, Saturday, Oct 22nd, the 80th birthday of Chairman Bobby Seale is the 15th Nat'l Day Against Police Brutality!
Keep the pressure on the pig!
Her name was Deborah Danner...

Comment by Marvin X

Elijah told us we live under the shadow of death in America. I'm amazed pigs are not trained to deal with the mentally ill, perhaps, it is because they suffer mental illness themselves!
A low information person told me today America is not Iraq or Syria, and this mental state that we are not in a long protracted low intensity war with America is precisely why we are shot down like dogs. They taught us in Boy Scouts to be prepared. Yet we make our daily round in the mind fields of America totally unprepared for war. How can anyone be prepared for war with pants hanging on their behinds? How can we be prepared for war without a united front that Amiri Baraka talked about?
Fanon said the only way the oppressed can regain their mental equilibrium is by joining the revolution. We must resist the white supremacy global bandits and their slave catchers in blue uniforms.
As per the mentally ill, i.e., those suffering traumatic slave system diseases, either mild, moderate or severe, must attempt the mental health peer group. There are simply not enough mental health workers in our community, so we must heal ourselves. See my manual How to Recover from the Addiction to White Supremacy, Black Bird Press, introduction by Dr. Nathan Hare.---Marvin X
