Morgan Bassichis is a performer who makes solo and collaborative work that draws on stand-up comedy, music, historical archives, collective singing, and self-help. He is particularly interested in the ways in which desire, grief, and fear are mobilized politically.
Notes on Black Lives Matter Movement, July 2016:
“Free from violence. Free from oppression. Free to be our full selves. Free to love. Freedom Now.
If you’ve been marching on the streets or been on the sidelines, this is your opportunity to join the movement for justice to make sure today is different than yesterday. We can create a future where Black children live in peace and possibility, not under a police state.
We will honor those we’ve lost by fighting for the world we can build together, the world we know is possible, the world we deserve.
What you can do:
This is a moment where all of us, driven by love, can make a change that will define this generation. Image what world we can live in if we follow our dreams instead of fear?
On Thursday July 21st we’re asking you to take action. Join a march, or rally, stage a walk-out or sit in. Hit the streets and stay engaged.
Find an action near you and join people in your communities demanding justice.
If there are no actions near you, don’t ask for permission, organize one.
If you need support, have questions, or feedback contact us and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
If you can’t hit the streets, take action online all day. Use hashtag#FreedomNow”
