Jump N Funk w/ Rich Medina | Oakland
The New Parish – discounted tix https://jnfoak.eventbrite.com 15UTAH Jump N Funk w/ Rich Medina Live Visuals by The Marksmen Hosted by Social Life & Aima the Dreamer Jump N Funk Soundcloud Album Sampler http://tinyurl.com/y7etogmv Starting life as a small New York event aimed at raising awareness for Fela Kuti’s musical message, Rich Medina’s Jump N Funk party has now been rocking dance-floors across the globe for over 15 years. Honouring Fela’s contribution to music as well as his political and cultural legacy, Medina has made his events a platform to celebrate Afro-Life across the Black Diaspora. With guests such as Wunmi, the cast of Fela! On Broadway, Asiko and Antibalas providing captivating live performances, Jump N Funk is so much more than a club night. In creating this compilation to represent the spirit of his events, Rich Medina has chosen an eclectic selection of undeniably afro-tinged, unashamedly life-affirming music. With most tracks either referencing, sampling or inspired by the great man, the record also includes material by Fela himself, as well as son Seun Kuti and long-time band member Tony Allen the inventor of the afrobeat set drum syncopation that is equally as notorious as Fela and his message… The album’s artwork has been lovingly created by Lemi Ghariokwu, the fabled Nigerian artist who designed some of Fela’s most iconic covers. From the record’s sleeve to the music contained within, Jump N Funk is a cultural artefact with one foot in the past, the other in the future. An echo of Fela’s message: a reminder to celebrate, to empower, to progress.

Breema Workshop in Lund, Sweden
The Breema Center – Breema är ett omvandlande system för att upptäcka sig själv. Det består av kroppsarbete sekvenser (rörelser som görs ihop med en annan person), själv-Breema övningar (rörelser som görs med den egna kroppen) och en universell filosofi som formuleras genom de Nio Principerna för Harmoni. Breema kallas för konsten att vara närvarande. Principerna uttrycker olika aspekter av närvaro och en djup förståelse för hur allt levande hör samman. Breema är ett sätt att förhålla sig till livet och till sig själv. De enkla naturliga rörelserna i Breema övningar stöder kropp, sinne och känslor att arbeta tillsammans för att öka mottaglighet, balans och öppenhet för livet. När vi utövar Breema medverkar principerna till att skapa en djup mottaglighet i såväl mottagaren som utövaren. Breema utförs fullt påklädd på en mjuk matta på gulvet. Alla kan ha nytta och glädje av Breema och de nio principerna i sin vardag. Workshop with Birthe Kaarsholm in Lund: Söndag 19. november, kl. 10-13 Folkparken, Trollebergsvägen 58, 227 31 Lund, Sverige 250 SEK To register or for more information about the workshop contact Birthe Kaarsholm birthek@breema.com or call Annette Holmström +46 708793739

The Center for Political Education – BLACK RECONSTRUCTION IN OUR TIMES: A CPE TRACK AT THE 2017 ZINN BOOK FAIR SAVE THE DATE! November 19, 2017 City College of San Francisco, Mission Campus Center for Political Education is excited to bring together authors from across the country with Bay Area organizers for a 5-session track at this year’s Howard Zinn Book Fair on November 19, at City College of San Francisco, Mission Campus. Last spring CPE organized the Reading Black Reconstruction Study Group where 50 local organizers and activists took on a collective study of WEB DuBois' monumental and essential book about the struggle against slavery and for Black political power at the turn of the 20th century. The resounding salience of the themes of DuBois’ Black Reconstruction in America for our times encouraged us to propose a track inspired by the book and the study group for the 2017 Howard Zinn Book Fair in November. The five-session track will put the authors of new works in conversation with organizers to help explore the Reconstruction themes of land, education, labor, political power, and resistance. We hope you and your friends, family, comrades, and co-workers will join us this year at the 017 Howard Zinn Book Fair for RECONSTRUCTION IN OUR TIMES!
