This fun and thought provoking evening, hosted by mystery writer Gary Phillips, will include a video produced especially for the event, presenting award-winning reporter, Greg Palast. Music of the movement will be performed by Conjunto Jardin, a jarocho and Nueva Cancion group. Roy Zimmerman will entertain with his compelling socially conscious comedy and original music. Critically acclaimed poets Eloise Klein Healy, Dima Hilal and Emma Rosenthal will read original work. Jude Narita, internationally known actor/writer will perform her monologues on the after effects of war. Beatifik Sol, with Besskepp and Abbye Atkinson, will perform musical verse. Also featured are the Street Poets United of Dreamyard/ LA., formerly incarcerated minors in the L.A. County juvenile detention system, whose powerful performances have taken place in theaters and community centers throughout Los Angeles.
