Good Trouble depicts the difficult quest to find justice for Jamal, and all the setbacks faced along the way. The series has had the good fortune of having Cullors not only act as a consultant on the series (she’ll also be back for season 2), but also having her appear as herself in the season 1 finale on April 2.
The upcoming exhibition at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE), Unravelling Collective Forms, brings together artworks that propose forms of collective resistance to oppressive hegemonies, often drawing on ancestral practices, and includes contributions from Tanya Aguiñiga, Carolina Caycedo, Patrisse Cullors, Demian DinéYazhi’, East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice, Jeannette Ehlers, and many others.
Cullors spoke about the recent issue with ICE targeting 21 Savage and Black immigrants during an appearance at SXSW in Austin, Texas. “Black people around the globe are being impacted by racism. So I think it should be a solidarity issue for us.”
Chaired by Patrisse Khan Cullors, veteran organizer, Black Lives Matter co-founder, and New York Times best–selling author of When They Call You a Terrorist, the Reform LA Jails committee fought alongside a committed coalition of citizens, community leaders, businesses, and organizations steeped in this work in order to bring the Reform Jails and Community Reinvestment Initiative to fruition.
In this SXSW event, Black Lives Matter movement co-founder Patrisse Cullors and young tech whiz Iddris Sandu sat down with Damon + Damon podcast hosts Damon Davis and Damon Turner to share their thoughts on black advocacy.
