Rashawn Brazell Update

Larry, Donald and many others have posted important commentary on Rashawn Brazell's murder, the Sakia Gunn memorial, and related issues. Bernie has provided a list of five excellent ways to make your voice heard. For those who can make it, there's a call to action on Blackfunk's site.

On Sunday, March 13th, 2pm-7pm, Black Funk will be the site of a community gathering and ritual to (re)member Rashawn, offer healing and comfort to the spirit of Rashawn given the violence of his transition and the desecration of his body, offer healing to each other as we acknowledge the pain this murder has caused in the community, pray for justice, and discuss community action.

Please contact us at Black Funk for more information via email at Information or via phone at (718)636-0345.

Bring candles (white, blue, and yellow), sage, jasmine and myrrh incense, music to sing, drums, florida water, A STONE (about palm-sized), flowers, and any other ritual item you feel appropriate for the purpose of the ritual (see above). Of course you may bring food and drink as well.
