TUNE IN TO THE FREE LIVE BROADCAST via PMN's FACEBOOK PAGE

Thursday, September 24, 7:00 - 9:30 PM (EDT)

* REGISTRATION isn't required to tune in to the free livestream above.  But when you register, you get an automatic reminder about the show and you can stick around for the post-show discussion.  In addition, any financial contribution you make supports The People's Music Network.

In this special artist showcase sponsored by the People’s Music Network, poets and musicians use their art to confront and resist the senseless violence against black people in America.  The art presented will also be in dialog with some of the leading lights of the black liberation struggle in the United States whose words will be shared during the program in short video clips.

Nina Simone said, “An artist’s duty is to reflect the times and situation in which we find ourselves.”  Today, we find ourselves in times of widespread racist police terror and failure of the system to meet the basic needs of the people -- conditions that aren’t new but which nonetheless demand urgent reflection.

The event is hosted by PMN Steering Committee member, Lindsey Wilson.  We will share songs and poems of liberation for people who are struggling today to be free.  We dedicate these songs to the ancestors who stood up to fight for justice.  As a group, we take seriously our responsibility as artists to motivate and inspire the masses.  After performances are done, we'll end the livestream and Dilson Hernandez will facilitate a semi-informal 30 minute discussion among the performers (and possibly a few audience members) about how they are grappling with the racism of this society and how they are using their art to resist it.  Be sure to register if you want to listen to the discussion.  (A Zoom link will be provided by email if you register for the event).
