Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with Resident Althea Baird: Cosmic Soul Force

On MLK day, current resident Althea Baird worked with local young people, adults, elders, and artists to create a powerful art demonstration entitled "Cosmic Soul Force". The project was youth led co-facilitated, with collaborators ART F//ACTION and Ash Richards.

In her own words, "We will write alone and together to create a speech that speaks to the freedom dream we are unfolding, to the destruction of the forces of oppression, and the transformation of power and spirit. This speech will be painted onto double sided signs for anybody that wants to roll to the protest."
