December Meeting

Our December meeting has been rescheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 16 at 6:30 pm at the Victory Grill.

The last Tuesday of December is just too much in the middle of the holidays. We will return to our regular meeting schedule and place in January.

We will have treats and drinks and a festive atmosphere at this December meeting. Please join us!

November Meeting

Because our regularly scheduled meeting would fall during Thanksgiving week, the November meeting has been rescheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 11 at 6:30 pm.

This is Veterans’ Day, so the Carver Library is closed. We will meet instead at the Victory Grill, 1104 E 11th St.

Hope to see you there!

FREEDOM SUMMER: A Hip Hop for Justice Concert

On July 11, 2008 at the historic Victory Grill, the Austin chapter of the National HipHop Political Convention, PODER (People in Defense of the Earth and her Resources), the ACLU – Central Texas Chapter, and Another Option Productions will host Freedom Summer: A HipHop for Justice Concert.

This event brings together some of the Austin’s’ finest HipHop artists, social justice organizations and activists to entertain, educate and organize members of the community around issues concerning police misconduct, racial profiling and the impact of the war on drugs and the war on youth (via programs masquerading as anti-gang/anti-graffiti efforts).

  • “Youth today are getting a raw deal: schools are closing on the eastside while more jails are being built and unjust war being waged, using them as cannon fodder. Our punitive criminal justice system sets up youth for failure. It is imperative we stop the madness and empower youth to organize for their future.” — Erika Gonzalez, PODER

Talented emcees such as Blacklisted Individuals, Element 7d, Global, Mirage, Rance Noble and Dred Skott, will rock the mic while licensed attorneys will present Know Your Rights and a Cop Watch Training for all attendees. Cliff Brown, the Police Monitor for the City of Austin, will inform attendees on how to file police complaints.

The Freedom Summer concert will also showcase artwork, poetry and spoken word pieces from the Young Scholars for Justice Network.

Chris Harris, producer/deejay of Concrete Schoolyard on KOOP 91.7 FM radio, hosts.

The Victory Grill is located at 1104 E. 11th St. Doors open at 7pm. Open mic, poetry and spoken word from 7-9pm. Speak outs, networking and deejay music will follow with HipHop acts/Know Your Rights trainings from 10pm-2am.

All ages are invited.

Tickets are $5 minimum, $10 preferred. All proceeds from the show will go towards scholarships for young people to attend the National HipHop Political Conference, August 1-3, in Las Vegas. Those wishing to donate to the scholarship fund can visit: http://www.nhhpcatxloc.wordpress.com where they can find out more about the Austin chapter of the National HipHop Political Convention.
