We will say the names of all Black, Brown, oppressed, and poor people who have been brutalized and killed in San Diego by the U.S. Criminal Justice System from 1985 to 2019. (From Gloria Verdieu's book Black August:1619-2019, La Lucha Por Socialismo, 2019.)

Members of the ReEvolutionary Poets Brigade, with guest speakers Gloria Verdieu & Yusef Miller, will read original poems to protest and cease police brutality and racism. Speakers will talk for 10 minutes. Each Brigade poet has 2 poems or 5 minutes. We want to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.

An Open Mic will follow the reading by the Brigade poets. Sign up at jimpoet@hotmail.com or on the day of the event. The open mic is limited to 10 poets with 1 poem each.
