As part of a global day of political poetic actions organized by the “100,000 Poets For Change” project, the Revolutionary Poets Brigade of Chicago presents its third public program, “If We Must Die.”
The event will serve as an artistic conversation in response to the recent events in Ferguson, MO, and an outcry against the constant racist, senseless murders of young black men by police in this country as well as the increasing militarization of police forces and other police-state developments in the U.S.
The program will bring together a wide range of artists and activists to address the issues from a variety of perspectives, and funds raised will go to “We Charge Genocide,” a grassroots, inter-generational effort to center the voices and experiences of the young people most targeted by police violence in Chicago.
Hosts: Bethel Kifle and Frankiem Mitchell
