Saturday, August 24, 4:00pm
Fruitvale BART Station 3401 East 12th Street, Oakland, California 94601
Our Hallowed Ground is a series of site specific performances based on the testimonies of Bay Area mothers who have lost children to violence. These performances, curated by The Love Balm Project, will take place in the spaces where the young men were murdered to commemorate their life, the memories that their mothers still carry, the communities that witnessed their death and the sanctity of the ground on which they stood. Come join us on our hallowed ground to bear witness. Join us at Grant Station, Fruitvale Station, to hear and see a life changing experience. We will honor Trayvon Martin, Alan Blueford, and many others with a vigil and speak out to what you can do in this movement of change. We all have to get involved.
