From Flagstaff to Flint -Some of our Communities Cant Drink Their Own Water

Some of our communities can’t even drink their own water because it’s so poisonous” said Klee Benally, a Dine revolutionary who works all over America but lives in Flagstaff, Arizona.

HOW A POOR WHITE GUY GETS THROUGH HOMELAND SECURITY WITHOUT A PICTURE ID

Hi everybody: I just came back from an experience I don’t want to do again. I went through Homeland Parinoia better known as Homeland Securityrted on June 8, 2015.  I went to visit a friends graduation in Seattle, Washington. I known her for a long time.  She is a good friend of mine. I went through the Airport in San Francisco OK.

Writing by T. Yeargin: "While Men and Women Weep" "Father Who are You?" "Who Am I" and "Human Development"

WHILE MEN AND WOMEN WEEP

As they do now, I’ll fight for their rights

to be free,

While little children go hungry as they do now,

I will try to feed them with the truth so they will

never go hungry.

 

While men go to prison,

In and out as they do now,

I’ll fight to be free and stand on

The word of god!

Hey Brother

Life is short for some people and life is long for others and it's hard to except the value of death. But without death there is no living life to the fullest. That's what Mark, a man who died too soon after a hemorrhage and facing the comeback of what the struggle can to people and sadly he had died leaving the world and going on his journey. Mark Flaherty a man who was born in 1969 and died in 2016.

A day For Mark Flaherty

The funeral started around 11 o' clock on a Thursday. At first it began cloudy then about a couple of minutes later it got sunny. The car he was in came, then his sister went along as some of his family and friends saw Mark for the last time. It was sad seeing Aunt Viv cry and depressing for most of his family. Then the pallbearers carried the casket toward the grave, then put it on top of something to carry the casket and lower it down.

A breeze for Mark

There was a small breeze that crawled through the graveyard in Vallejo, California. It seemed that that breeze was honoring along with us the amazing man Mark Flaherty who died January 28, 2016 at the age of forty-seven. When we got to the site of the funeral we saw a group of people spread out and waiting for the hearse.

It Gets Better With Time: A Review of "Encore", Poems by Diego DeLeo

James Baldwin proposed that it is, ultimately, the poets--that is, the artists-- that know what it is to be human, who are most qualified to tell us about ourselves.  The poet's report is the one that only the poet can tell--clergymen can't do it, labor unions can't do it, politicians can't do it, etc.

 

Black and Brown Unity Against Police Impunity

What is Mario Woods telling us?  Mario, you made a film, shot a film about your home, the Bayview.  It was titled, “HP From Then till Now”.  Opening shot, your home, mid-shot—the faces and voices of your home—wide shot; shots from different angles—shots all over.  Mario, tell us what it is you see, what are you telling us?  The only thing that many people know about you is the image of you, pursued by the cops, and the gunshots ringing out, piercing your body, which is the black body of the city, the black memory of the city, the memory
