10,000 Strong Boston - A Call to Action
logo-cutout.gifIt is time to stand up, take responsibility and be accountable. Who Cares? We do. We doin' good in the hood. Are you tired of the drugs, guns, violence, crime, broken families, lack of guidance and direction. Are you in need of service? Will you serve? Do you need support? Will you support? Together we are 10,000 strong. If one can make a difference, what will 10,000 strong do? Think of it as a mini Million Man March for Boston.

A Rally...A Gathering... A Call to Action: Sunday June 22, 2008, Franklin Park.

When people ask what I "do," I tell them that I'm an independent radio producer. When their eyes glaze over, I add "freelance journalist." When they ask "what paper do you write for," I give up.

To Snitch or Not To Snitch: The View From The Other Side
snitching.jpgI decided to write this article in response to the endless criticism that is being directed against the “Stop Snitching” movement by critics claiming that Hip Hop is responsible for the “Stop Snitching” movement and the “Us vs. Them” mentality youth of color have towards law enforcement agencies. As a former gang member and street combatant of the drug wars that dominated the streets of Philly in the late 80’s and a member of the generation that came of age listening to Hip Hop I believe I am qualified to offer a frontline perspective from the other side of the issue, especially as one who was sentenced to life without parole as a juvenile because of the testimony of a snitch co-defendant that was close to 10 years older than I.

To mark the 5th anniversary of the U.S. invasion into Iraq, Harvard Law students from the group Unbound, HLS Peace, Justice for Palestine, and the National Lawyers' Guild sponsored a three-day lecture series called Confronting Empire: Five Years of War with Iraq. The third day, March 19, fell on the actual anniversary date, and the lecture this day was called "US Foreign Policy and Intervention in the Middle East." It featured Irene Gendzier, Boston University Professor and Author of "Notes from the Minefield: United States Intervention in Lebanon and the Middle East," and Howard Zinn, historian and author of "A People's History of the United States."
