Tonight! Film Screening and Discussion! 7pm

Six members of Almighty Latin King and Queen Nation in Greensboro are in jail, being held without bond for allegedly violating RICO.

RICO is the Racketeer Incluenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, a vague criminal statute whose broad purview has been abused by federal agents and government attorneys to harass, criminalize, and destroy communities of color, and to maintain inflated, racist hysteria about gang violence.

All the charges against these men are unsubstantiated, frivolous, or false. The indictment represents another iteration of the State’s latest campaign to impede and dismantle grassroots associations working for radical, positive change.

Come to a screening of “Black & Gold”, a documentary about the history of ALKQN, and for a brief discussion on their current situation, how it relates to other struggles, and what lies ahead.
