Your presence is requested at a very special edition of Pacific Standard Time this Tuesday, January 13.
We are celebrating the life of Herman Bell, Black Panther Party activist and a US political prisoner for the past 35 years currently incarcerated here in San Francisco's County Jail as on one of the SF 8 (http://www.FreetheSF8.org ).
Herman is the father and mentor of Ankh Marketing & PST's Kamel Bell. Herman is presently incarcerated in SF County Jail and is one of many victims of the FBI's COINTELPRO (counter-intelligence program) arrests of US activists.
We welcome legendary NYC DJ and community organizer DJ REVOLUTION aka LUMUMBA to the turntables this week. Lumumba is the co-founder of the Black August concert series, as well as Revolution International Sound System in Brooklyn, NYC. He is a respected DJ, community member and university professor and created the hugely successful Brooklyn Renaissance jump-off. This is his PST debut and we are SUPER juiced to have him here.
Additionally, we will be hosting the first-ever PST Teach-In, moderated by the the leading expert on hip-hop and politics, our own DAVEY D. The panel runs from 9-10pm and is FREE (come to the panel, stay for free for PST!) DAVEY will be leading a panel discussion on COINTELPRO, the history of activism in the Bay Area and police brutality and repression -- and WHAT YOU CAN DO to help Free the SF 8 and win justice for Oscar Grant!!
**PROCEEDS FROM THE FUNDRAISER WILL GO TO THE CAMPAIGN TO FREE HERMAN BELL AND TO THE FAMILY OF OSCAR GRANT, WHO WAS RECENTLY MURDERED IN COLD BLOOD BY BART POLICE IN OAKLAND**
Jean-Jacques Dessalines, one of the liberators of HAITI, fought and gave his life to prove to the world the reality that being Black is not a criminal offense. Let us not forget this.
