Malcolm X Grassroots
Movement and the Free Your Hood Coalition have teamed up with other grass roots
organizations and artists to take a stand against police terrorism.
The “Free Your Hood”
campaign will release a documentary that is geared towards shedding light on
the issue of police brutality in the Black and Latino community.
Artists such as dead prez
and others will share their experiences in an edutaining documentary that will
recall the accounts of personal experiences dealing with police terrorism.
“This is the most necessary [project] in the game," M1 of dead prez
explained. “It’s hood reality. It explains with revolutionary clarity
the situation black and brown people are in… and how we’re going
to get out!"
Other artists featured
on the mixtape project are John Legend, Jaguar Wright, Treach from Naughty By
Nature, Immortal Technique, A-Alikes and many others.
In continued efforts to not only raise awareness but keep the focus continuing,
the Free Your Hood movement has also planned to launch a newsletter called the
People’s Post containing articles on various social issues such as gentrification,
housing problems, and the prison industry that will be available to the public.
