The event creator says
We Shall Not Be Moved.

The Freedom Singers performed this Civil Rights tune at the March on Washington in 1963. It's a song that's never left some, and is back in the minds of many since the results of the 2016 election. Fear and anger creeps in when basic human rights are put in blatant jeopardy. The internet doesn't help, but community gathering can. To learn, comfort, and build, Bring Your Own is proud to partner with the New Orleans Workers' Center for Racial Justice + Propeller: A Force for Social Innovation for a special evening on:

"MOVED"
