    Save The Kids Radio HipHop Power Hour Commemorating Black August!


     


    Black August originated in the California penal system to honor fallen Freedom Fighters, Jonathan Jackson, George Jackson, William Christmas, James McClain and Khatari Gaulden. Jonathan Jackson was gunned down outside the Marin County California courthouse on August 7, 1970 as he attempted to liberate three imprisoned Black Liberation Fighters: James McClain, William Christmas and Ruchell Magee. Ruchell Magee is the sole survivor of that armed liberation attempt. He is the former co-defendant of Angela Davis and has been locked down for 38 years, most of it in solitary confinement. George Jackson was assassinated by prison guards during a Black prison rebellion at San Quentin on August 21, 1971. Three prison guards were also killed during that rebellion and prison officials charged six Black and Latino prisoners with the death of those guards. These six brothers became known as the San Quentin Six.


    Along with this great topic, Kym Young will be co-hosting live from the NCWP Lammas Arts & Music Festival in Superior, WI!

After speaking with all are you they all agree that the main focus they wanted to target with helping the less fortunate, the homeless.


    Gina- after the type of charity the kids agreed upon we started brainstorming on the name. We were right around the corner from Valentine's Day so we were incorporating the word love. We thought "well homeless people are often forgotten, passed  by and get no love, hence, LOVE for the Loveless was born...


    Liz- now when we're putting this all together and going out there and talking about donations  we first ask,  "what kind of donations do we need well we need?" Anything and everything... What do homeless people need? Everything ,food ,clothing, water, candy ( for Valentines Day we gave them Valentine's Day candy and it felt like Christmas to them.) clothing items, box, everything, tends to sleep in, blanks, anything you know, and if you can't donate any of that, your time, come help us out, it's a rewarding, fulfilling experience.
