#MayDay Gallery

‎"Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." ~ Howard Thurman

‎"The artist who takes up revolution will quickly realize that creation and revolution are inseparable entities!" ~ Pablo Picasso

Paul Robeson Quote Performance- http://www.sitegallery.org/archives/3085#.T4Y3344t1Fs
What is it? A performance of the quote by Paul Robeson: ‘We ask for nothing that is not right, and herein lies the great power of our demand.’ Paul Robeson (1898 – 1976) was an American actor, singer, scholar, athlete, writer, lawyer, trade unionist and social justice advocate. The son of an escaped slave, he was at the forefront of the civil rights movement.
Where can I see it? Union Square rally between 4 - 6 pm.
How can I help? 1) Be part of the performance! We need 17 people, one for each word in the play, to wear T-shirts and perform choreographed movements. 2) Help document the piece via photography and video.
Contact sonya.dyer at gmail.com if you can help
