This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Diaspora Group Commends House Chairman for Urging Investigation into Rwandan Human Rights Abuses
At Hearing, Rep. Chris Smith Questions President Kagame’s Role in Killings, Disappearances
WASHINGTON, DC (May 20, 2015) – Democracy in Rwanda Now (DIRN), a non-profit, non-governmental organization, on Wednesday praised the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights and International Organizations for urging an investigation into Rwanda’s human rights record and President Paul Kagame’s role in a series of troubling events including killings and disappearances of dissidents.
Subcommittee Chairman Chris Smith (R-NJ) called some of the recent reported abuses “serious crimes” and said the international community needs to take a “very aggressive look” into what President Paul Kagame’s complicity was in the disappearances and killings of dissidents. “If there are death squads being deployed to kill the diaspora and political opponents...we need to get to the bottom of this,” he said.
The chairman made the remarks at a hearing Wednesday called “Developments in Rwanda,” which he called to examine “persistent, credible reports of human rights abuses by this government both inside and outside the country,” and “how this reality impacts US policy toward Rwanda.”
“Any investigation into the assassinations, attempted assassinations and disappearances of Kagame dissidents is welcome news,” said one of the hearing witnesses David Himbara, a former top economic aide to Kagame and coordinator for the North American branch of DIRN. “I applaud Chairman Smith and Ranking Member Karen Bass for their leadership on this very serious and important issue. The Rwandan people deserve to live in a free and democratic society without fear

Last week Rep. Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield) and Sen. Alberta Darling (R-River Hills) decided that their vast experience as suburban Wisconsin legislators qualififed them to introduce a bill that would literally take away Milwaukee Public Schools from the people of Milwaukee. Yes, they proposed a "public school take over bill." These bills have been passed in many urban areas across the country and have been proven to simply be a private take over of urban poor and minority populated schools. Later in the week it was announced that the bill was killed. However, the movement to privatize urban public schools has been way too lucrative to just let die. Instead of a bill, the Milwaukee School Take over Bill has been simply slated to be passed as part of the state budget process—truly undermining the political and social capital of the citizens of Milwaukee.
Tonight's special episode will feature Milwaukee school board member, former teacher and editor of Rethinking Schools Larry Miller, Wisconsin Public Education Network's Heather DuBois Bourenane, and Angela McManaman, President of Parents for Public Schools-Milwaukee.
