Lady wisdom cries out in the streets
But nobody listens and history repeats
When the story's been written,
The course has been run,
We'll be left standing here holding the gun
New song coming soon. #wrongsideofhistory #silenceisviolence #listenlosangeles

Delonte giving a word!! #listenlosangeles

Thank you @listenlosangeles for creating a space for truth, honesty, love, and art. Thank you for setting an example of how the church should respond. Thank you standing in the gap. Words cannot express... "How many years can a mountain exist before its washed to the sea?
Yes, 'n' how many years can some people exist before they're allowed to be free?
Yes 'n' how many times can a man turn his head pretending he just doesn't see?
The answer my friend is flowing in the wind...The answer is blowin' in the wind

How many times must a man look up before he can see the sky?
Yes 'n' how many ears must one man have before he can hear people cry?

Yes 'n' how many deaths will it take til he know too many people have died?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind the answer is blowin' in the wind"

Yesterday, thanks to @theandrehenry's vision, I had the opportunity to carry a weight that is normally invisible. I took this boulder everywhere I went.... #ListenLosAngeles #BlackLivesMatter #MassIncarceration #WhiteFragility #SayTheirNames

Almost time #listenlosangeles

An important thing happened last night. @mackenz_e with @listenlosangeles and five other African American artists asked us to just sit and listen. To listen to their experience of being black in America. I hope we did. I hope we figure out how to carry this load with them. #listenlosangeles #blacklivesmatter

Sound check #ListenLosAngeles

My God, My God, when does this end?
The law-enforced killing of family and friend?
These bones, after centuries trying to bend,
Have now broken. Will You allow just allow them to mend?

Repost from @listenlosangeles : "A note to my white friends who marched. You might be tempted to think that the lack of arrests were because of general "good behavior," and good organization. Don't fall for it. If these marches had been largely people of color, we would have encountered the police out in force and geared up. We don't have time to be coy about the racism that exists.
But now we have a tool. Now we know that the police are still cautious about being too forceful with those they perceive to be white women. Let's use that. Let's be strategic and cunning and use every tool we've got." -Leslie Foster (Writer.Filmmaker.NomadArtist) #BlackLivesMatter #WomensMarch #ListenLosAngeles #ArtistsForChange #HereToStay

@septemberpenn speaking from the perspective of a black mother and wife and why she will no longer let her children go to the corner store after the murder of #TrayvonMartin #hewasjustaboy #blacklivesmatter #listenlosangeles #listeningproject

Paraphrased from what @theandrehenry shared earlier: If the “God” you worship doesn’t care about social justice, including the current black experience, then that is not good news to me. #BlackLivesMatter #ListenLosAngeles #goodnews

@mackenz_e sharing why she started @listenlosangeles, and the freedom it gives her to share her experience, and her existence, without it being questioned. #ListenLosAngeles #BlackLivesMatter

@delontegholston’s preaching requires that you press in. Press in and show up. Press in and do something. Press in and put your body on the line! #ListenLosAngeles #BlackLivesMatter #WhereIsYourBody #ActionsSpeakLouderThanWords

"Artists are always responding. Sometimes through artistic expression. Sometimes through silence. Honestly, there are points when the onslaught of violence is so great that I can actually feel myself go numb and shut down. Then, in that faithful moment, something rises to speak."- September Penn

@septemberpenn is a phenomenal singer and the founder of Sounds of the Civil Rights Movement: The Power of Song. LLA is extremely excited to have her join us this evening, as we continue to expand our pool of artists.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the #ListenLosAngeles event tonight at 7:30pm at Mountainside Communion Church in Monrovia. Come ready to learn, reflect, and listen. •
