Pambazuka - Open letter to President Barack Hussein Obama

"Sir Duke Ellington pointed out nearly a century ago that we as a people must call our music ‘Negro’ (Black) music so others could not dishonestly claim it as theirs. Black music is one of the many gifts that Africa and Africans have presented to the world."

Show Us the Money: Milwaukee’s Occupy the Hood

By Khalil Coleman
May 2012

Take Back City Hall” was organized by Occupy the Hood (OTH) Movement because for decades communities of color have always been at the bottom of the 99%. It is no secret that one of the main factors contributing to our struggle has been and still is, that we have no political voice or political power that truly represents some of the poorest communities. We have elected officials in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and throughout the states that are selling out the peoples needs for corporate greed and are profiting off the backs of the poor.
