New Report from DOJ details race-based policing, 13 August 2016

'Crossing Boundaries: A Must See Show' by Dr. Steeve Coupeau, 8/21/16

 

On Wednesday, August 10th, one day after the second anniversary of Mike Brown’s death in Ferguson, the U.S. Department of Justice released a report documenting how the Baltimore Police Department’s widespread race-based policing is carried out at every stage of BPD’s enforcement actions. This is not just Baltimore’s story; it’s the story of over-policed communities of color nationwide. The Department of Justice has documented heinous mistreatment of minorities in Cleveland, Ferguson, New Orleans, and elsewhere and deep-seated racial disparities persist nationwide at every juncture of the justice system. We applaud the Department of Justice for releasing this report. Now it’s up to Congress to act on its findings. NYIHA MEDIA salutes the efforts of the Black Lives Matter movement promoting respect for people of African descent in the United States. Will you stand up for racial equality? Tell your representative where you stand!

 

 

 

I attended a successful production of 'Crossing Boundaries' which was performed with such exceptional talent that I must recommend that you see it before time runs out.

Crossing Boundaries refers to two short plays from Trinidadian writers as part of OFF THE BOAT, a summer Caribbean Theatre Festival. Dueling Voices, by the prolific Zeno Obi Constance, author of Banana Boat and NPTC’s acclaimed production of The Ritual is paired with Nice by Mustapha Matura (Playboy of the West Indies.)

The production runs August 18 through 27th at New Perspectives Studio, 458 West 37th Street, with performances Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30pm and Sundays at 4:00pm.
