Continuing with our 2023 "New Breed" interviews, this week our returning guests are Jamilia Land and Samual Nathaniel Brown.
They are two of the lead organizers for the "End Slavery In California Act". On Thursday, 2-16-23 at the CA Capitol they joined Assembly member Lori Wilson in hosting a press conference introducing the legislation. The act is an Assembly Constitutional Amendment that will remove involuntary servitude from the California State Constitution.
We'll listen to some of the press conference highlights and discuss the future and history of slavery in California as well as nationwide.
Jamilia is co-director of state operations for the Abolish Slavery National Network (ASNN) and a former board member of the March On Foundation. Samual is co founder of the Anti-Violence Safety and Accountability Project, (ASAP) and was the original author of the legislation. Written in his cell while incarcerated with a life sentence.
Of course we've got music and poetry to share featuring Tupac Shakur, Knox Brown, Anderson Paak, Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, and Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.
We'll also get back to our Bridging The Gap Segment with "A Warning To The American People From Frederick Douglass".
