A Real Life Superhero

Bree Newsome became an Internet and media sensation when she did what many were longing to do but didn’t dare. She scaled a flagpole outside South Carolina's statehouse and brought the flag down, while police officers waited to arrest her below.

Prince in Baltimore

Source: Urban Cusp



@deray: It appears that Prince arranged for the family of ‪#‎FreddieGray‬, & the mothers of ‪#‎MikeBrown‬ and ‪#‎EricGarner‬ to attend the concert.
@deray: And @MarilynMosbyEsq and her husband are seated on the stage. Prince brought them out on center stage and everyone cheered.
@deray: And Prince moved the people who bought the $22 tickets from the top of he venue to directly in front of the stage. Awesome.
@deray: And Prince walked back out and said, "No Curfew!" Well done.

manifest justice

"Do yourself and your soul a favor if you haven't already by going to Manifest Justice! You have 3 days left! Last night I had such a phenomenal experience surrounded by a packed room full of open-hearted people attending a discussion on the impact of social justice through the arts! It warms my heart so much that this FREE pop up exhibition is right in my backyard where I grew up. Right in the heart of a similar type of hood to those across the US that continue to need manifestations of justice. Go. Trust me. You will appreciate this. Breathe in the art, reflect, and recognize the part you play in society today. ‪#‎manifestjustice‬" Elena Muslar
