Towards (A) Communal Cypher Benefit Show is being coordinated to raise funds for the Trayvon 2. Engaging Hip Hop as a tool of Decolonization and the continued building of Black and Brown people struggles, we intend to support a thriving local, underground, creative, resistant hip-hop community and those targeted for speaking for the liberation of our people(s). More information coming soon at qilombo.org.
The Trayvon 2 (Hannibal Shakur and Tanzeen Doha) were arrested while protesting the George Zimmerman not-guilty verdict in the murder of Trayvon Martin. The Trayvon 2 are the only people being charged and the only Muslims arrested, and are currently being railroaded through the judicial system on false charges. For more information, updates on developments in the case and ways to support the Trayvon 2’s freedom, visit thetrayvon2.wordpress.com
