As we all gather together at this annual festival to regroup, to build, to feed our souls, and to acquire knowledge we embrace the theme for this year’s festival: A cultural reconstruction for third world self-determination. *
As a Third World organization we understand that the key path to justice, democracy and equality in the U.S. is based on the struggle for Black & Brown unity. Our strength then must connect with liberation struggles in Mexico/ Latin America and the African Diaspora. This is what Malcolm X understood and advocated when he spoke of the Third World nations and peoples.
We call for B...lack & Brown unity as a pivotal force for self-determination especially in these mad times of a resurgent white supremacist offensive. Black & Brown unity not only in our neighborhoods but also across the globe to reconnect our lives, our struggles, our cultures with Mexico, Latin America and the African Diaspora… To strengthen our historic ties and collective memories… our art and music, we need a new cultural consciousness to reconstruct a demented social order and to wake up America.
*CULTURAL RECONSTRUCTION: To rebuild and reclaim revolutionary Third World consciousness, values, memory and traditions of struggle and creativity to make a just, righteous and egalitarian society.
As always we are celebrating jazz and it’s roots and future in Black communities. The line up features some of the best and the brightest; the most promising; the legendary; some new on the scene; some who have years of knowledge and grace…
