the dc chapter of the black august planning organization had a fundraiser last friday that featured artists jacob soul, j.sun and tamika love jones.
what's black august? during the month of august we commemorate those prisoners like marshall eddie conway, lolita lebron, marilyn buck, assata shakur, mumia abu jamal and dr. mutulu shakur who were imprisoned for their political beliefs or political activities at the height of radical/revolutionary organizing in this country. proceeds for black august go to provide resources for these liberation fighters, as well as raise awareness around their continued incarceration.
