7. Saturday, June 23, 10:00am – 11:30am, Families Belong Together – San Francisco – Rally

Embarcadero Plaza (Justin Herman Plaza)
SF

Hosted by the Women’s March San Francisco:

San Francisco will rally to oppose the cruel, inhumane and illegal separation of children from their parents/legal guardians along the U.S. border with Mexico, at other ports of entry into the U.S and in our communities. We protest the conditions in which these children are kept. We protest the irreversible trauma that has been perpetrated in our communities for the crime of seeking a better life, migration. We stand together to demand an END to family separation.

To separate immigrant families, victims of violence, hunger and poverty, is to re-victimize them. This practice we claim is inhumane, cruel and unusual punishment. Children as young as 18 months are torn from their mother’s arms by the U.S. government! This is violent, physical, emotional and mental abuse! We rally to opposes the inhumane policies of the Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Patrol, and I.C.E.!

We will hear from elected officials, organizations, and community leaders about what Washington is doing, what California can do, and what we as San Franciscans can do to stop this human rights violation.

Dolores Park
SF

11:00am Rally & Venues

5:00pm – March

March through Castro Street back to Dolores Park.

Continued Resistance!

Calling all Dykes: come march with us!

The San Francisco Dyke March is a call to action. Marching reminds us that complacency is not an option. We cannot be divided – we must raise our voices!

This is our day to celebrate our identity and take to the streets – proudly. It is our day to make our voices heard, to honor the political battles we have won, and to fight for the rights we have yet to win.

What is dyke identity? Since there is a great mosaic of dykedom, if you self-identify as a dyke (fully inclusive) then you are a dyke. Dyke stands for trans, black, brown, queer, bi, lesbian, disabled, chronically ill, fat, femme, butch, indigenous, gender expansive love

To be a dyke in San Francisco in this day and age is not just a sexual orientation, it’s a political identity in response to the corporatization of Pride, along with disappearing San Francisco queer spaces.

We ask our male allies to support us from the sidelines, as our march is about representation and taking up OUR space.

Net neutrality backers fume as California bill watered down

Scott Wiener has been pushing legislation to revive regulations repealed last year by the Federal Communications Commission that prevented internet companies from exercising more control over what people watch and see over the internet. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli, File)

California legislation that was billed as one of the nation’s most aggressive efforts to revive net neutrality was watered down during a tense legislative hearing Wednesday, leading the author to repudiate what he called a “mutilated” bill.

The legislation has been closely watched by energetic net neutrality advocates, who quickly denounced the decision.

Sen. Scott Wiener has been pushing legislation to revive regulations repealed last year by the Federal Communications Commission that prevented internet companies from exercising more control over what people watch and see over the internet.

Wiener urged the Communications and Conveyance Committee not to move forward his legislation, but the panel voted 8-2 to advance it to another Assembly committee.

Wiener, a San Francisco Democrat, said passing the diluted measure would be worse than passing nothing at all.

“California is the progressive bastion for the country right now. People look to us to lead the way,” Wiener told The Associated Press. “If California passes a weak, watered-down, ineffectual net neutrality bill, that sets a terrible standard not just for other states but for the federal government.”

Assemblyman Miguel Santiago, a Los Angeles Democrat who chairs the committee, did not give a specific reason for the amendments. In a statement, he said California needs to beat back efforts by Trump administration and the telecommunications industry to end net neutrality.

In a tense exchange with Wiener, he said his committee deserves input and said Wiener was trying to be a martyr for a purist view of net neutrality.

It was an unusually public display of differences among Democrats that are usually aired in private.

Internet providers remain opposed even with the changes. They say it’s unrealistic to expect them to comply with internet regulations that vary across the country.

“We strongly believe that state-by-state regulation of the internet is inappropriate,” Steve Carlson of the wireless industry group CTIA said.

Net neutrality advocates linked the amendments to political contributions from internet companies to Santiago and other committee members. Evan Greer, deputy director of the advocacy group Fight for the Future, said the committee is “blatantly corrupt.”

Oregon, Washington and Vermont have approved legislation related to net neutrality, but California’s bill was seen as the most comprehensive attempt to codify the principle in a way that might survive a likely court challenge. An identical bill was introduced in New York.

“This was seen as a gold standard that could spread to other states,” Greer said, but she still holds out hope that it can be improved in the next legislative committee.

Wiener’s bill would prohibit internet providers from blocking or slowing data based on its content or from favoring websites or video streams from companies that pay extra. Those protections remain.

But other provisions Wiener sought were removed — including a ban on so-called “zero rating,” in which internet providers don’t count content from their own subsidiaries or partners against a monthly data cap. The bill also no-longer includes provisions that Wiener says ensure internet providers can’t get around the spirit of net neutrality.

Wiener’s bill drew a letter of support from U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a San Francisco Democrat who rarely weighs in on state legislative matters.

“I urge you to maintain all of the comprehensive protections in SB 822 to ensure that California citizens, not the companies we pay to get online, are able to decide which apps, services and websites they use,” Pelosi wrote in the letter dated Monday.

U.S. Rep. Edward Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat, tweeted a day before the hearing that “California lawmakers need to stay strong; everyone is watching.”

Net neutrality advocates worry that, absent rules prohibiting it, internet providers could create fast lanes and slow lanes that favor their own sites and apps or make it harder for consumers to see content from their competitors.

That could limit consumer choice or shut out upstart companies that can’t afford to buy access to the fast lane, critics worry.

Internet providers say they’ve publicly committed to upholding the values of net neutrality, but that strict rules like Wiener’s would inhibit investment in faster technology.

The Green Book (Muammar Gaddafi)

Burned-out The Green Book centre in Benghazi‘s downtown during the 2011 Libyan Civil War

Coat of arms of Libya (1977-2011).svg
This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
Libya under Muammar Gaddafi

The Green Book (Arabicالكتاب الأخضر‎ al-Kitāb al-Aḫḍar) is a short book setting out the political philosophy of Libyandictator Muammar Gaddafi. The book was first published in 1975. It was “intended to be read for all people.”[1] It is said to have been inspired in part by The Little Red Book (Quotations from Chairman Mao).[2][3] Both were widely distributed both inside and outside their country of origin, and “written in a simple, understandable style with many memorable slogans.”[4]An English translation was issued by the Libyan People’s Committee,[5] and a bilingual English/Arabic edition was issued in London by Martin, Brian & O’Keeffe in 1976. During the Libyan Civil War, copies of the book were burned by anti-Gaddafi demonstrators.[6]

Influence

In Libya

According to British author and former Greater London Council member George Tremlett, Libyan children spent two hours a week studying the book as part of their curriculum.[7] Extracts were broadcast every day on television and radio.[7] Its slogans were also found on billboards and painted on buildings in Libya.[7]

International

By 1993 lectures and seminars on The Green Book had been held at universities and colleges in FranceEastern EuropeColombia, and Venezuela.[7]

Contents

The Green Book consists of three parts and has 110 pages.[7]

Views

The Green Book rejects both capitalism and communism, as well as representative democracy. Instead, it proposes a type of direct democracy overseen by the General People’s Committee which allows direct political participation for all adult citizens.[7][8]

The book states that “Freedom of expression is the natural right of every person, even if they choose to behave irrationally, to express his or her insanity.”[9] The Green Book states that freedom of speech is based upon public ownership of book publishers, newspapers, television, and radio stations, on the grounds that private ownership would be undemocratic.[7]

A paragraph in the book about abolishing money is similar to a paragraph in Frederick Engels‘ “Principles of Communism”.[10]Gaddafi wrote: “The final step is when the new socialist society reaches the stage where profit and money disappear. “It is through transforming society into a fully productive society, and through reaching in production a level where the material needs of the members of society are satisfied. On that final stage, profit will automatically disappear and there will be no need for money.”[11]

Criticism

George Tremlett has called the resulting media dull and lacking in a clash of ideas.[7] Dartmouth College Professor Dirk Vandewalle describes the book as more a collection of aphorisms rather than a systematic argument.[1] U.S. Ambassador David Mack called the book quite jumbled, with various ideas including “a fair amount of xenophobia” wrapped up in “strange mixture”.[12]

Writing for the British Broadcasting Corporation, the journalist Martin Asser described the book as follows: “The theory claims to solve the contradictions inherent in capitalism and communism… In fact, it is little more than a series of fatuous diatribes, and it is bitterly ironic that a text whose professed objective is to break the shackles… has been used instead to subjugate an entire population.”[9]

The book caused a scandal in 1987, when West German ice hockey club ECD Iserlohn, led by Heinz Weifenbach, signed a US$900,000 advertising deal for the book.[13]

BART’s fiscal year 2019 budget addresses homelessness, fare evasion

Note from Mike Zint:  It does not address homelessness, it addresses the homeless. No shelter allowed. Get back out in the rain!

budget_danielkim_ss-copy

DANIEL KIM /STAFF

BART’s board of directors approved a $2.3 billion budget for fiscal year 2019 starting July 1, addressing issues ranging from homeless encampments to fare evasion, according to a press release issued Thursday.

The budget allocates $1.6 million to increase security measures and reduce encampments on BART properties, as well as $300,000 to hire two additional BART police dispatchers. Mike Zint, co-founder of homeless rights activist group First They Came for the Homeless, said these measures are targeting homeless individuals.

“Fencing is about restricting access to people BART approves of,” Zint said in an email. “Homeless (people) are not approved of. Cops are there to make sure you pay, and to make sure you aren’t a homeless person sitting in a hallway.”

BART spokesperson Chris Filippi, however, said BART is taking a multifaceted approach to homeless encampments on BART properties, and BART’s goal is to “promote public safety.”

BART helped create “Homeless Outreach Teams” through a partnership with the city of San Francisco to get support for homeless individuals living in downtown San Francisco stations, according to Filippi. He added that BART is looking to establish similar partnerships in other communities that BART serves, including Berkeley.

“When we’re talking about the homeless issue, it’s something that we see impacts of in the BART system, but this is a broader problem — not just in the Bay Area, but in the nation,” Filippi said. “To deal with it in an effective way, we have to partner with communities.”

Filippi said the teams build relationships with homeless individuals and help them find appropriate supporting services. Zint, however, said they are “sweeping the homeless away” in San Francisco.

“All they did was remove,” Zint said in an email. “The official responses to homelessness are never about a solution — they are about punishment, public humiliation, demonizing, and scapegoating.”

The budget also allocates $1.2 million to design and construct “ ‘hardening’ ” improvements to prevent fare evaders from bypassing the fare gates, according to the press release. An additional $1 million is allocated for purchasing fare gates and other equipment to reduce fare evasion.

Filippi said reducing fare evasion is a “long-term” project and BART is currently researching and developing a plan for implementing new fare gates. Lateefah Simon, a BART district director, previously told The Daily Californian that BART loses millions of dollars annually to fare evaders, and the issue continues to worsen.

“It’s a giant dollar drain,” said Berkeley City Councilmember Kriss Worthington.

Worthington added that he sees people avoid paying the fare by using the accessible elevators in the Downtown Berkeley BART station. Filippi said BART installed fencing near the elevators at South Hayward BART station in order to combat a similar problem, and is considering the fencing approach for other stations as well.

BART’s budget will also fund the “Pit Stop Program,” which provides public restroom facilities at the downtown San Francisco stations, according to Filippi. Worthington said that City Council asked BART to reinstate a public restroom at the Downtown Berkeley station, and BART is currently working on including one in the renovated station.

“For us, this budget highlights quality of life issues that our riders have made it clear to us,” Filippi said. “We want them to feel comfortable. We want them to feel safe.”

Demand Aid for Puerto Rico!

Last fall, Hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated Puerto Rico, destroyed the island’s electric grid, killed thousands, and left thousands more homeless and out of work.

Now, the 2018 hurricane season has begun and 22,000 people in Puerto Rico are still without power, putting businesses, families, and public safety at risk. This is unacceptable.

Puerto Ricans are U.S. Citizens, and we cannot abandon our fellow Americans. Add your name and tell Congress we cannot forget about the people of Puerto Rico.

As you read this 300,000 terrified children are being bombed, millions of lives are at risk and a famine-struck country’s food aid is being cut off.

And it’s happening because Trump just gave the green light!
After a thumbs-up from the White House, United Arab Emirates jets have just launched a full-scale attack on Yemen’s port city of Hodeidah, where half the residents are children and 80% of the aid arrives.

Fight Racist Attacks Against SF City Employees And All Working People
Commemoration of Juneteenth At San Francisco City Hall
Stop Systemic Racism and Workplace Bullying At City and County Of San Francisco And All Work Location and the Community

Juneteenth commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. state of Texas, and the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans throughout the former Confederacy of the southern United States. Today in the United States over 153 years later, there is an explosion of racist attacks on African Americans including hanging noose incidents and systemic racist discrimination not only in private jobs but in public institutions like and city and county of San Francico, DPH and the SFUSD. The open racist hysteria being whipped up by the Trump administration is spilling over to every community and work location in the United States as African American, Latinos, Asians and immigrants are being targeted and terrorized.

The San Francisco Labor Council has spoken out against the systemic racism and discrimination in the City and County of San Francisco and for the return of SEIU 1021 Potrero Hill Health Center member Cheryl Thornton to her job and this issue will be addressed by the rally as well as the treatment of African American and Latino by the San Francisco police department and other work locations.

Supervisor Jane Kim has introduced a resolution, co-sponsored by Mayor-Elect London Breed and Supervisor Aaron Peskin, calling for a hearing to get to the systemic issues leading to the unfair treatment of workers of color

2. Tuesday, 12Noon – 2:00pm, STOP Ripping Children from their Parents! Trump/Pence MUST GO! 

Market @ Post & Montgomery Sts.
SF

May march to ICE in SF

This is a moment of great outrage and urgency. The Trump/Pence regime is ripping children from their parents. Putting these children and babies in tent cities. Throwing them into cages. Terrorizing them. If we accept this now, we cannot ask how people accepted Nazism in Germany in the 1930s. Nobody with a spark of humanity should tolerate this.

Now is the time for all organizations and people of conscience to come together in massive nonviolent protest to reject this.

And, we must work together to turn the outrage that millions feel right now into a movement of massive sustained protest that stays in the streets day after day

Immediate mass protest against family separation must happen now, before today’s outrage become tomorrow’s normal.

Bring kids’ shoes or other materials to contribute to an installation depicting the terror befalling the children of immigrants being locked in concentration camps.

More dates & times to be announced — let us know if you are planning or learn of other protests!

SF Gray Panther Meeting

Tens of millions of seniors and people with disabilities need, or will need, long-term care, yet this care is ruinously expensive, or exhausting for family members, and is often inadequate.

Learn more about the problem and how senior/disability activists, personal attendants, and people hiring them, are working together to win quality and affordable long-term care for all who need it in California.

How can we meet growing and unmet long-term care needs of today’s and tomorrow’s seniors and people with disabilities? Our speakers:

Steve Kaye is a Professor at the UCSF Institute for Health & Aging.

Lindsay Imai Hong is a leader of the SF Care Council, a group of senior, disability, and domestic worker activists pressing for affordable, quality long-term care for all need it, and creation of a new workforce of care workers with good pay and working conditions, dignity, training, and legal protections.

Both Steve and Lindsay are part of the group that put together San Francisco’s Support at Home program, a pilot program of subsidies to help pay for home care for SF residents who do not qualify for In-Home Support Services because their income is slightly above IHSS limits. San Francisco’s Support at Home is a step toward universal long-term care, just as Healthy San Francisco is a step toward universal healthcare in California.

The Mission District is over the amount of market rate housing that was calculated in the 2008 Eastern Neighborhoods Plan in order to maintain a healthy housing mix. We are in dire need of affordable housing. This project uses the state density bonus program that allows developers two extra floors in exchange for lower affordable units maximizing their profits. In one of the most vulnerable and weakened neighborhoods this development will continue the pressures of displacement and advanced gentrification, pushing us to exclusion. This project provides 75 Luxury units, only 8 affordable and is 8 stories high.

First Republic Bank has financed more displacement than any other bank in Oakland.

Join us to tell First Republic that they have a duty to our community and must stop driving people out of Oakland. Since 2000, Oakland has lost 30% of its black population. The average rent for a 2-bedroom apartment in 2016 was $3,284. Over 130 buildings have been removed from rent control in the past six years. Homelessness in Alameda County increased 36% in just one year.

First Republic has made hundreds of loans to property owners who filed hundreds of evictions in Oakland. First Republic underwrote loans to property loaners based on them charging tenants higher rents, rather than current rents

Send a strong message to First Republic and all banks – they must sign our Anti-Displacement Code of Conduct and cease displacement financing.

With Robinson’s incarceration, many far-right-wing agitators around the world view him as a political prisoner and have been rallying for his release.

One such group of right-wingers is planning a rally to “Pray for Tommy Robinson’s Freedom” at the British Consulate in San Francisco on the afternoon of Saturday, July 7th.

S.F. hits brakes on Farrell’s high-speed internet plan

Plans for a citywide broadband internet service backed by Mayor Mark Farrell have been put on hold after a survey found weak support among voters for a revenue measure intended to finance it. (Mike Koozmin 2013/S.F. Examiner)

By  on June 17, 2018 (SFExaminer.com)

San Francisco’s effort to create a citywide broadband internet service for all residents and businesses has suffered a setback as outgoing Mayor Mark Farrell will not place a tax measure on the November ballot to fund the project before he leaves office in the coming weeks, the San Francisco Examiner has learned.

Farrell, who is expected to leave office mid-July, has been leading the citywide fiber internet project, which had the support of the late Mayor Ed Lee, for several years. Most recently The City had selected three teams of companies who could potentially build and operate it.

San Francisco would be the first large city to create a municipal citywide fiber internet service.

But Farrell told the San Francisco Examiner he has decided not to move forward with a revenue initiative for the November ballot to pay for the project, as was previously contemplated. The deadline for Farrell to submit a tax proposal is Tuesday.

The revenue initiative would have generated $1.7 billion over 25-years, the estimated cost of the project. But a poll showed it was just short of the two-thirds needed to pass.

The City had intended to issue a request for proposals this month for the three teams to bid on, but that has now been put on hold indefinitely.

The Office of Contract Administration sent a June 13 letter to the three bid teams informing them of the delay. “The City and County of San Francisco has decided to further consider factors essential to the success of the project prior to issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP),” the letter said. “Given the groundbreaking nature, complexity, and cost of this project, it is important that we reduce uncertainties to the extent possible prior to issuing an RFP.”

The letter continued, “In the coming months, the City intends to research a number of factors, including how market conditions and the construction environment would affect the project.”

The City hasn’t released the names of the companies, but the Examiner was able to confirm one bid team is comprised of Monkeybrains, Black and Veatch, Zayo and Nokia.

“The RFP was intended to be released in June, but will not be released this summer,” Brian Roberts, a policy analyst with the Department of Technology, which is overseeing the project, told the Examiner Friday. He said while the department continues with further research “we will inform the bid teams and the public of our progress and proposed next steps.”

For Farrell, the project could have given him a significant political boost and build on his legacy. And while he has denied he would run for mayor in November 2019, many political observers have opined it remains a possibility for the venture capitalist and Marina resident.

He leaves behind the project for the next mayor, Board of Supervisors President London Breed, who is expected to be sworn into office on July 11, after the election results are certified on July 10.

Tensions between Breed and Farrell have existed ever since the moderate Farrell allied himself with progressive board members when he was District 2 supervisor to remove her from her role as acting mayor, which she assumed when Lee died, and instead appoint him as the mayor for six months. The move could have weakened her mayoral bid.

Breed declined to comment Friday on the fiber project.

Farrell, however, said his vision for the fiber network remains within reach. “Through this project we can eliminate the digital divide and connect all of San Francisco to fast and affordable internet,” Farrell said in a statement. “These next steps will lower the cost burden on taxpayers and The City while also providing crucial information to help this project succeed.”

Farrell has directed his staff to compile a briefing binder for Breed about the project, including ways to make it a reality.

The department’s planned additional research includes a market study to determine how much revenue The City could generate by leasing the fiber broadband network to lower the project’s overall cost estimate. Farrell has also asked the bid teams to figure out how to assume more financial risk upfront in exchange for higher returns on the network.

He added, “I pledge my full support to Mayor-Elect Breed and entire project team to help see this project through to provide a more equitable future for all San Franciscans.”

The City has estimated about 100,000 residents lack internet access, about 12 percent of the population, and 15 percent of public school students lack internet access.

It was estimated that a 1 Gbps data service would cost residents between $26 and $67 a month and businesses between $38 and $97 a month, according to a report issued in October by city consultant Maryland-based Columbia Telecommunications Corporation. The project assumes there would be a subsidized service for low-income users.

The last time San Francisco attempted to create a citywide internet service was more than a decade ago. The City’s proposed partnership with Google and Earthlink for ubiquitous wireless service fell apart in 2007.

‘Not the End of Net Neutrality,’ Say Internet Defenders, But Beginning of ‘Most Important Battle Yet’

“Any lawmaker, of any party, that fails to sign the discharge petition in support of the CRA will regret it come election time.”

fftf

“Congress needs to know: the internet is coming for net neutrality and they can either help save it, or prepare to face our wrath come election time,” says Fight for the Future. (Photo: @fightfortheftr/Twitter)

 

As the FCC’s rollback of net neutrality protections officially took effect on Monday, a broad coalition of free press and digital rights campaigners vowed to maintain pressure on members of Congress to either restore the federal rules “or prepare to face our wrath” in the November midterm elections.

“People are pissed off. And rightly so. The gutting of net neutrality is a symbol of our broken democracy. It’s the worst of the worst that the D.C. swamp has to offer.”
—Evan Greer,
Fight for the Future

Supporters of net neutrality rules—which require internet service providers (ISPs) to treat all online content equally—are aiming to convince House Speaker Paul Ryan and additional Republicans to support a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution that would overturn the FCC’s party-line vote.

Last month, a few Senate Republicans joined with Democrats to pass the CRA, which was spearheaded by Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.).

“Now we’re fighting an uphill battle to get the House of Representatives to do the same,” explains the BattleforNet coalition, which includes Fight for the Future, Free Press, and Demand Progress. “It’s not going to be easy, but if the whole internet comes together to fight, we can win.”

“In the House, we’ll need 218 lawmakers to sign on to a ‘discharge petition’ in order to force a vote past leadership to the floor,” the coalition’s website outlines. “That means we’ll need to convince all the Democrats and about 25 Republicans to support the CRA. The clock is ticking—if the CRA resolution doesn’t get a vote this year, it dies when the new Congress comes into session.”

Now that the repeal is in effect, ISPs “have the green light to begin degrading our access to the internet,” said former FCC commissioner and Common Cause special adviser Michael Copps. “Monopoly phone and cable companies will undoubtedly seek to maximize profits by favoring their own content over their competitors and creating fast lanes and slow lanes ultimately at the expense of consumers.”

With that in mind, Battle for the Net is promoting three ways constituents can urge their congressional represenatives to back the discharge petition:

  • flood them with calls and emails;
  • schedule in-person events, protests, meetings, and canvassing;
  • and encourage small business owners to sign a public petition pledging their support—because “in Washington, money talks,” and lawmakers recognize the “vital” role those owners play in their districts.

Trump-appointed FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, “a former Verizon lawyer, bucked the lawignored public opinion and twisted the facts to make his ill-advised case for handing control of the internet to the anti-competitive cabal of giant phone and cable companies,” as Free Press’s Timothy Karr noted in an op-ed on Monday.

Poll after poll after poll after poll shows large majorities of Republican voters in opposition to the FCC’s repeal,” Karr pointed out. “Any Republican seeking re-election in the fall can’t run from this polling data or from the people back home who demand real net neutrality.”

“People are pissed off. And rightly so. The gutting of net neutrality is a symbol of our broken democracy. It’s the worst of the worst that the D.C. swamp has to offer,” Fight for the Future’s Evan Greer said in a statement Monday.

“But it has sparked an unprecedented backlash from across the political spectrum, and internet users are coming out of the woodwork to fight tooth and nail in Congress, in the courts, and at the local and state level,” she continued. “This summer we’ll channel our anger productively and harness the power of the internet to mount an unprecedented district-by-district campaign to get Congress to do their job.”

“The internet is coming for net neutrality. There is nowhere to hide,” Greer concluded. “Any lawmaker, of any party, that fails to sign the discharge petition in support of the CRA will regret it come election time.”

  • Tickets

On Monday, June 18, 2018 at 7:00 PM, the Lorraine Hansberry Theatre (LHT) in Association with Project1VOICE (P1V) presents a Juneteenth benefit staged reading of FLYIN’ WEST by Pearl Cleage.

FLYIN’ WEST will be read at over 45 African American theater companies, museums and artistic organizations nationwide and abroad as part of P1V’s ONE Day ONE Play staged reading event to highlight Black theaters and playwrights. 

FLYIN’ WEST is fiction based on fact and a powerful look at African American pioneers searching for equality. Set in 1898, the lives of a small group of African American women change as they leave the oppressive South for the West where they settle together in the all-black town of Nicodemus, Kansas. The play explores the universal themes of determination, feminism, pride and freedom.

As a playwright and author, Pearl Cleage is known for her feminist views particularly regarding her identity as an African American woman. Both her fiction and non-fiction works have been widely recognized. Her novel, What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day, was a 1998 Oprah Book Club selection. Ms. Cleage is the Playwright-in-Residence at the Alliance Theater in Atlanta.

All local proceeds and donations will benefit the Lorraine Hansberry Theatre and help support LHT’s 2018-2019 season. The reading will be followed by a reception and silent auction of LHT memorabilia.

OccupyForum Field Trip discount tickets for those who need ’em!

​We have to buy online so here’s the link…

Here’s a note from the theater:

Hi Ruthie,

I’m following up on our phone conversation regarding a group discount for Monday’s staged reading of Flyin’ West by Pearl Cleage in the Buriel Clay Theatre.
After we spoke, our Finance Director said that the discounted tickets must be purchased online and not at the door.  Rather than you providing me with a list, I have set up a P1V15 discount code that you can tell your group.
They must go to our website at www.LHTSF.org and click on the Flyin’ West Tickets tab at the top.  They can select the number of tickets they wish and apply the P1V15 code.  The cost of each ticket will be reduced to $15.00. There is no convenience fee added.  The code is set up to stop after 20 tickets are sold at this price, so it’s 1st come, 1st served.
With this being a fundraiser, that’s the best group discount I can offer.
I do hope to see you on Monday.
Best wishes,
Gina
