Fighting Poverty with Passion
It’s spring time, and the flowers are blooming, temperatures rising and projects are booming. This spring we’re geared up for several Race Peace Workshops in Universities and High schools around the city. The I-Witness Central City project is launching a cousin project, in partnership with the GRN for a new series of videos we’ll be directing and shooting called I-Witness Coast. This spring, we will take two of the 10 stories the GRN shot around the coast about different communities that are being directly impacted by the BP Oil spill, and we will go deeper to find out more about those stories.
Mondo Bizarro has also been busy shooting a Music Video with M.U.G.A.B.E.E. for a song they did called “Lawd Have Mercy”. It’s main topic is about the BP oil spill and the inaccurate news coverage that was delivered by major news channels across the country. We plan on having this video finished and completely edited by the oil spill’s anniversary – April 20th, 2011.
The Loup Garou will also be on tour late spring – early summer, we are still working out the details for that.
In the mean time, we ask you to take a second and highly consider going to this festival in June: ROOTS FEST! Several Arts organizations will be present to show their work and spread the word about non-profits around the country, trying to work towards social justice.
