An Evening for Amnesty

Monday, August 29 · 7:30pm - 9:00pm

1719 25th St., Sacramento, CA
A truly international community of writers and activists will entertain you with a poetry reading to benefit Amnesty International. With so much conflict in the world today, there remains a powerful means of expression as well as an encouraging source of peace, in written and spoken word.

Among those speaking are California state labor leader and Cesar Chavez protege, Al Rojas, and Zimbabwean activist poet and professor, Emmanuel Sigauke. Brian Ang will also bring vigor to the SPC stage - he is the author of two new books, Communism (Berkeley Neo-Baroque, 2011) and Paradise Now (Grey Book Press, 2011). He lives in Oakland, California.

Also: world music, refreshments.
