A clip from me and @g.sullivanra performance at the "Displacement Disrupts Peace" Event at the Oakland Peace Center . Got to perform "Peace" coming soon from my new and upcoming mixtape L.E.O., it was honor to spread some words of wisdom to the people and really connect with people on our same high vibrations. We want Peace in our community, in our world and the only way to get that is Unity, Evolution of self, and Love. #DisplacementDisruptsPeace #OaklandPeaceCenter #InternationalDayofPeace #performance #Bayarea #Oakland #consciousmusic #hiphop #UrbanPeaceMovement #BlackMensDetermiNationGroup #Justice  #FightAgainstGentrification #Schoolsnotprisons  @urbanpeace510 @determinationbmg @unitedrootsoakland

[Via #WBALTV] A man convicted of murder in 2005 has been exonerated by DNA evidence, officials said Tuesday.
----------
Lamar Johnson was convicted of first-degree murder in 2005 in the killing of Carlos Sawyer on March 26, 2004. Johnson, who pleaded not guilty at that time, was later sentenced in 2006.
----------
In the years since, he has filed multiple appeals and the case was eventually closed in 2008, according to court records.
----------
A petition for post-conviction DNA testing was filed in December 2016. A hearing for a Writ of Actual Innocence took place Tuesday, when a judge issued a ruling that set aside the 2005 first-degree murder and gun verdicts.

Wise words from UMass Boston SSDP Chapter Leader, Joseph Gilmore, who's pictured here speaking at the Boston Hempfest:
"Businesses should be reflective of local residents, product quality should be held to the highest standards, policies and regulations should be focused on benefiting communities disproportionately harmed by marijuana prohibition. There's much more to legalization than the initial vote. It will be a continuous ongoing community effort to implement and maintain sensible marijuana policies... Our generation needs to be part of the conversation when implementing these policies." πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Today was amazing! Spoke at GSU Law School with two incredible people, that I deeply admire. I was able to share my story, and connect with so many people in such a poignant way. I went with my Rocker Chic look because I couldn't bare to wear a bright color today (that's SO not usual for me, I live in neon colors.) One of my dad's former lawyers called me a rockstar, so my look was fitting! 😬 I felt like a rockstar! Being able to speak about my childhood & young adulthood, having experienced what it's like to have a father on GA's deathrow; puts a face to the many victims of capital punishment. I hope that I can inspire children who are in similar situations to what I experienced as a kid, (depression, social anxiety, which I still struggle with til this day), that it can and does get better! You too can be a rockstar! πŸ€˜πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’« #gsulaw #massincarceration #deathrow #deathrowstories #endthedeathpenalty #notinmyname #deathrowfamilies #schoolsnotprisons #socialjustice #criminaljustice #activism #justice #humanrights #peace #love #family

It's impossible to talk about criminal justice reform without talking about race. The statistic about the population at Rikers is just one example.

The hardest part about working with incarcerated youth is when everything is over and all you can do is hope that what you gave them resonated and that they're still able to read your books and that even if they're able that they enjoy your work and that even if they're able to enjoy your order that they use it to live better.

I almost never see the kids again but my heart stays with them forever.

Missing a couple of folks but this is a pic of the 2017 cohort. They are some of the dopest folks in the movement right now. Standing next to me is the Andrea James, and behind me, James Kilmore. Feeling so blessed to be funded by #GeorgeSoros  to do work that I love πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. βœŠβœŠβœŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š #SchoolsnotPrisons  #EducatedDontIncarcerate  #SorosJusticeAdvocacyFellowship  #FormerlyIncarceratedXingonas  #
Nothing but OG pinteras, former lifers, bad ass organizers, prison survivors, and brilliant mujeres in this picture. Glad to be surrounded by this network of powerful womyn. Excited for the new journey I am about to embark on in a couple weeks.

What can be said about the colonization, I mean the gentrification of Downtown Santa Ana? Where our students talents are "showcased" yet none of them can afford to live there. Heck, most can't even afford a place of their own in ANY part of the city ✊🏼❀️ #fuckgentrification #vendidos #defendthehood #gentrificationkills #homesNOTgalleries #peopleoverprofit #santaanastandsup #schoolsnotprisons  #OVAS
Yesterday we had an awards ceremony at the juvenile hall, for all the peer mentors in the facility, and I made some cds of their music. I'm just proud to make music with these great young men, and I look forward to working with them when they get out. The music is so dope, one day I should able to share it publicly, but rn this is the best I can do #studios4students #stayloud #schoolsnotprisons #vota #imaginejustice

Wrist Warmers are the accessory that work as hard as you do. Sadly, this is the LAST PAIR available in this gorgeous raspberry pink tweed. If you're starting to feel the chill of fall mornings, grab these now! Tap link in bio to go directly to the #etsy listing. Do you now have "Raspberry Beret" going around and around in your head? I do!

I think it's an amazing thing that Mexico celebrates it's Independence Day on Sept 15th & 16th because when Hidalgo gave his call for freedom, he wasn't the first to do so. In fact, a few months prior, another Spanish Creole gave the call but he only wanted to include Creoles and a few of the lighter skinned Mestizos classes. But it was Padre Hidalgo that called for independence for all of Mexico, ESPECIALLY for the Indigenous and African populations. And it's his call that we celebrate, the one that included the darkest of our people. Yet much of Latin America and Xicanxs can't seem to recall that. We must if we are to live up to the grito of our ancestors; black, brown, white - unidos somos mas. #independenceday #sept16 #gritodedolores #mexicanindependenceday #mexico #aztec #decolonize #blacklivesmatter #schoolsnotprisons #diadeindependencia

#repost @atwgirl : ✨ SNAPSHOT OF THE DATA:

Compared to white girls of the same age, survey participants [adults] perceive that: β€’ Black girls need less nurturing β€’ Black girls need less protection β€’ Black girls need to be supported less β€’ Black girls need to be comforted less β€’ Black girls are more independent β€’ Black girls know more about adult topics β€’ Black girls know more about sex 🌱

A Georgetown Law Center on Poverty and Inequality study shows that black girls (especially in the age range of 5–14) in the United States are perceived by adults as much less innocent than white girls 🌱
