November 5, Saturday - December 10, Saturday Celebrating Ali's Fighting Spirit (Richard Beaver Gallery)
6:00pm-9:00p at Richard Beavers Gallery
None: Free

L E R O Y   C A M P B E L L T H E   F I G H T   C O N T I N U E S.... This exhibition is dedicated to Muhammad Ali and his fighting spirit. He embodied the long line of fighting spirits we have as a people. Our spirit defines us. Ideology, family, political affiliations, or race does not have a right to disrupt or bring disharmony to it. The threatening of your God-given spirit must be removed. The spirit itself fights for that right. Our fighting spirit is ancestral. It is in our DNA. We are unafraid, determined to be our authentic self, unapologetically black and committed to the salvation of ourselves. It is in our natural spirit to be willing and ready to contribute to the greater good of humanity. Our souls are interconnected and we feel each other’s pain whether we ignore it or not. This is why we have to fight this battle together. When we combine our spiritual powers, only then will God’s force help us. Until then, the fight continues…  - Leroy Campbell "I know I got it made while the masses of black people are catchin' hell, but as long as they ain't free, I ain't free." - Muhammad Ali Exhibition Dates: November 5, 2016 - December 10, 2016 Opening Night: Saturday, November 5, 2016 | 6pm-9pm Artist Screening, Discussion and Book Signing: Sunday, November 6, 2016 | 2pm-5pm Richard Beavers Gallery 408 Marcus Garvey Blvd. Brooklyn, NY 11216 347 663-8195

January 20, Friday IT’S TIME TO FIGHT (ACLU ACTION)
7:00 AM at

All eyes are on America. Donald Trump just won the presidency. And the ACLU will stay vigilant – every single day Trump is in office.

If President-elect Trump tries to turn his unlawful and unconstitutional campaign promises into policy, we’ll see him in court. He’ll have to face the full force of the ACLU – all of our lawyers and advocates in every state – and he’ll have to answer to you.

Get ready to fight with us. Add your name to stand with the ACLU – to take action, to protect all of our rights, and to win battles in the weeks ahead.
