A message from Kalonji at FTP:

On Friday November 21, 2008, in honor of falsely accused death row inmate Troy Anthony Davis, we will be hosting Poets 4 Political Prisoners-“Free Troy Davis”. This historic event will serve as an educational piece and a benefit, which will launch the creation of The Troy Anthony Davis Scholarship Fund. On hand will be Troy Davis’ family, community activists and a number of artists. We are asking for your participation as well.

Poets 4 Political Prisoners is a tool used to educate through the use of poetry and hip-hop, highlighting freedom fighters and activists. Poets 4 Political Prisoners serves as a benefit to support the creation of materials such as, CD’s and newsletters used for the legal expenses and commissary of many victims of injustice. Past participants include: Dusk Daughters, Amir Sulaiman, Liza Garza, Chairman Fred Hampton Jr., Mukasa Dada, Bilal Sunni-Ali, Queen Sheba, Kazi Ture, Askia Toure, Black Out Arts Collective and a number of Def Poets.
