Immortal Technique Hosting Jena 6 Benefit Concert

Underground hip-hop artists and activist, Immortal Technique, is holding a benefit concert for the Jena 6 at Lehman College in the Bronx on November 1. The event will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Lovinger Theater. Tickets will be $7 for Lehman students and $10 for non-students. “This is a benefit show with all proceeds going towards the legal defense fund for the Jena 6,” says Immortal Technique. “It is important to rally and march, but it is equally, if not more important, to speak by enforcing the necessary channels for legal action.” Immortal Technique gained notoriety in the underground circuit in 2003 with the release of his critically acclaimed album, Revolutionary, Vol. 2. Drawing comparisons to Chuck D from Public Enemy, the Harlem native has acquired a cult following through his scathing political and social commentary. Immortal Technique has been a staunch supporter of the Jena 6, a group of six Black teenagers from Jena, Louisiana who were wrongfully charged with second-degree attempted murder after beating a white Jena High School student. The incident allegedly stemmed from two Black high school students sitting under a “white” tree on the campus. White students allegedly responded by making threats against the Black students and hanging nooses from the tree.

    I’ve written a Jena Six dedication that I’d like feedback on, called “We Made It”. It’s a free download cause i really did it to bring more awareness to the fact that this country seems to have gone back 60 years in a blink. I’ve also decided to officially Bury Tha N Word… Hip-Hop Is Alive!

I just won’t be able to support it versus all my tried internal reasoning and restraint, my finger has a thoughts of its personal, and I come across myself not getting equipped to resist the 50% off tattoo offers and good dining promotions at the new stylish Russian restaurant in town. Over the past handful of months, I have recognized that, like many persons who order these day-to-day promotions, my social calendar is filling up speedily. Amongst my hectic operate schedule and incessant family members obligations, there is just not ample time in my day to redeem all my . I’ve realized that I may well have clicked on the “buy” button also a lot of occasions, and hence have a shoebox full of neglected, expiring Groupons and unused Living Social discount coupons. What’s an over-zealous offer addict to do? Very well, there is a resolution, a way that I can truly re-promote my unused Groupons or expiring Residing Social deals and make back most of the dollars I invested on it.
