I found this story in the LA Times to be fantastic.  Dancers using dance to protest. Read more here: LA Times

The seeds for street dance activism were planted with the 2012 death of Trayvon Martin. After Bell learned Martin’s shooter George Zimmerman was able to walk free, she immediately headed to L.A.’s hot spot for arts and activism: Leimert Park

Using art to speak within the times is exactly what we are about here for NevahBlackDown.  Non violence, non traditional protesting, art, love, joy are all amazing ingredients for change.

Hi, my name is Karen Gibson Roc and I am the creator and curator of NevahBlackDown. I am a Mother first and foremost. Poetry is my gift and I use it to speak to my own heart as well as those who choose to let my words in. NevahBlackDown is an ongoing conversation that I am choosing to have with those who care to listen. I share my work and the work of others who feel that art, voice, and expression is a powerful means to spark change, share positive imagery and inspiration.
