April 2004

A Tribute to the Life, Efforts and Legacy of
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Sunday April 4th 2004 - 12 noon to 3pm
Laundromat (Corner of Marcy Ave. & Gates Ave.)
Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, NYC

We are honoring the Life, Efforts, and Legacy of MLK on the anniversary of his 1967 speech "Why I Oppose the War in Vietnam", and his 1968 murder.

On Sunday April 4th, 2004 we will be broadcasting speeches in the laundromat (Marcy Ave. & Gates Ave.) and onto the street from the same location.
We will be playing:
12 noon
Dr. Joy Leary "Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome" pt. 1

This speech was delivered at the Abyssinian Baptist Church, Harlem, 2003.
1pm
Tim Wise "Beyond Diversity" pt. 2

Tim Wise is the founder of AWARE (The Association of White Anti-Racist Education).
2pm
Martin Luther King Jr. "Why I Oppose the War in Vietnam"

This speech was delivered at the Riverside Church, Harlem on April 4th 1967. He was assassinated on April 4th 1968, exactly one year after giving his first major sermon speaking out against the Vietnam War.

We will also be launching our new street program for 2004, which will include installing new neighborhood signage, distributing educational / promotional materials, public art projects and more.

This is part of our commitment to take consciousness to where the people are.


August 2003

This could be a strong launching point for our plans to intensify our efforts. Although this is the outgrowth of the Block Association NOT obtaining a "block party" permit, we now have a chance to prove how flexible, alternative strategies work. The plan; A Community Celebration. If this strategy works, it will take a natural occurrence, Labor Day festivities, and utilize it as a community building block. Check out the Initiative Digest for additional information.

We proudly announce...

The 1st Annual Gates Ave.
Community Celebration
Sat. Aug 30th - 12 noon to 8pm

We ask that you be considerate.
Play music that's good for you, your grandparents and your young sisters and brothers.
So please, check the foul language.

COME JOIN OUR URBAN COMMUNITY PICNIC
Cook food, eat, dance, skip rope, chill, drink and enjoy...

WE want EVERYONE out CELEBRATING our
community & Labor Day TOGETHER.

Let's keep the block clean during the event.
PLEASE use garbage cans and bags.
The street will not be blocked off, so keep an eye on the children

We may not own where we live...
But we raise our children and build our families here.

Our way of honoring the life of James Davis and his
"Love Yourself, Stop The Violence" Initiative.


June 2003
W
e have launched a Clean Streets program for the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Gates Ave. between Marcy Ave. and Tompkins Ave.

Public garbage cans have been installed in target areas on the block to help minimize loose garbage ("urban tumbleweed") on the streets, and improve the quality of life on the neighborhood.

With the cooperation of elders and concerned people from the neighborhood, the cans will be maintained.

Promotional support provided by WBAI 99.5 fm NYC


The funding for this initiative was provided by
Edisa Weeks, chashama Theater @ Times Square and Real University.

Garbage cans
are located where the white dots are on map.
