Revolution Books received this from the BA Everywhere Committee
A Special Benefit Performance
for the BA Everywhere Campaign
Chicago BA Everywhere Committee is excited to announce that Maggie
Brown, distinguished jazz singer, songwriter and educator has generously
offered to perform her one-woman showLEGACY: Our Wealth of Music as a fundraiser for the BA Everywhere Campaign Sunday, June 1, at 3:30pm.
Howard Reich, the Chicago Tribune jazz critic, wrote about Maggie Brown's LEGACY show in 2012:
the history of African-American creativity, the performance piece
examines the roots of Black musical culture and its greatest flowerings.
From African chant, to early ragtime, from classic jazz to modern
blues, LEGACY represents Brown's view of the noblest innovations in
American music. Part concert, part monologue, part lecture, LEGACY has
taken Brown to concert stages around the country, and perhaps more
important, to schools across the city."
benefit is part of a major fundraising campaign, "BA Everywhere...
Imagine the Difference It Could Make," to make revolutionary communist
leader Bob Avakian's (BA) leadership and new synthesis of communism
known in all corners of society so people can know and get into why and
how the brutally inhuman society we live in need not be forever. There
is a whole other way humanity could live and flourish. The problem is
too few know about it. Funds raised at this benefit will contribute to
popularizing Avakian and his work so people can engage, discuss and
debate what is the way forward to emancipate humankind.
Many volunteers are needed:

of life and many perspectives are needed to realize the tremendous
