  • Mood:
I almost let this Seattle live Journal community stomp my spirit with your do-nothing reactionary attitudes! A few days ago I posted a call for Zombies to participate in a street theater "happening" at the upcoming Jan 16th MLK March. I received some thoughtful and provocative dialog, but there was mostly know-it-all bullshit nay-saying about the project.

Check it out. I listened to your cautions about appropriateness, respect for the Elders in the Black community and what not and wrote a formal letter to the Chairman of the MLK Planning Committee, Larry Gosset, requesting endorsement.

Here is what he emailed me:

"Cleo,
Your "Dead Awake" performance will not be out of place in our March. We have had, over the years many creative anti-racist and anti-imperialist skits take place within the context of our March. We do not think what you all do will offend anyone. You are welcome to let it fly! Thanks for checking with us. See you on Monday.
If you get a chance come up an introduce yourself to me."

-Larry Gossett

Be careful when judging other people's projects that are trying to heighten the political awareness of our fair city.

Seattle is definitely not as Liberal as it thinks it is!
