Virtual Town Hall / by J. Ivy

The other day I had the honor of opening up the Hip-Hop Caucus' Virtual Town Hall meeting with a poem titled "Land of the Free, Home of the Slave." The meeting included Trayvon Martin's Mother Sybrina Fulton, Oscar Grant's Uncle Bobby, Jessica Care Moore, Davey D, Raheem DeVaughn, Rev Yearwood, and more... It was a peaceful discussion about reforming some of the damaging laws that are currently in place, rebuilding the community, and finding solutions for avoiding tragedies that we have been witnessing oh too often here in America. The conversation was VERY productive and I look forward to continuing to making this home the one we ALL dreamed of. GOD BLESS YOU & again I would like to send my DEEPEST condolences to the Martin & Grant family...LOVE!!
