Police Strike Back with Vicious Arrests--Drop ALL the Charges!
People stood up. Defiant. With the joy of fighting for justice and for the humanity of Black and Latino people. April 14 announced to the whole country that the beautiful movement that began in Ferguson and spread through the fall to stop the killing and the utter disregard for Black and Latino lives is back. Thousands of people took to the streets in more than 30 cities across the country-to STOP BUSINESS AS USUAL BECAUSE BUSINESS AS USUAL IN AMERICA MEANS POLICE GETTING AWAY WITH MURDERING BLACK AND LATINO PEOPLE. [Read more...]

Sunday, April 19 - See the Play at 3 pm and Stay for  Town Hall Conversation:
"Black Lives Matter: Past, Present, and Future."
Play synopsis: It's 1676 in Virginia - a time when class, not color, defined an American's destiny. Historic figure and wealthy landowner Negro Mary believes a vile curse has been cast upon her family and land. But her plans to break the curse are thwarted by a secret wedding, an interracial love triangle, and a crime of passion. Can Mary cheat fate and change the course of history? Or will their lives end in division and destruction? In An Issue of Blood, Victory Gardens Ensemble playwright Marcus Gardley and Artistic Director Chay Yew ( The Gospel of Lovingkindness) look to a pivotal moment in our collective past to understand how we arrived in our tumultuous present.

The facts, the reasons behind, and the ultimate solution to the national epidemic  of police murders are found at Revolution Books Chicago. We will be open from noon to 5 pm on Saturday and 2 pm to 5 pm on Sunday, April 18 and 19.
