Mysonne "The General" Linen
Kings Stop Killing Kings: Family Reunion March in Honor of Nipsey Hussle
Grand Concourse, Bronx New York
It was an honor to stand in unison with Mysonne "The General" Linen, Tamika Mallory, Yandy Smith, and Chi Ali Griffith as we marched down the Grand Concourse in solidarity honoring the life and works of the late great Nipsey Hussle. The event was referred to as "The Family Reunion" by Mysonne and supporters of his national call for Black Kings to Stop Killing other Black Kings. Hundreds of men, women and children of color came together to work toward putting an end to the genocidal behavior that plague black communities in America. There were numerous celebrities and political figures in attendance, including Bronx Borough President, Ruben Diaz Jr. Malik Yoba gave an enlightening presentation about the Willy Lynch Syndrome and its affect on people of African descent.
I was blessed to witness and be a part of what will go down in history as the rebirth of the Civil Rights Movement. Hearing Mysonne speak was nostalgic and reminded me of other great leaders such as Marcus Garvey, Dr. King and Malcolm X. In the famous words of Jay-Z "That boy good". However, the highlight of the family reunion came when influential gang members of the Bloods, Crips and Latin Kings tied red, blue and yellow bandanas together symbolizing the unification of men of color. The energy that roared through the crowd during that moment was so electrifying that it still gives me goose bumps!
Who do you think is responsible dis-ease of people of color?
What are you doing to help end violence in your community?
When is it time to become actively involved with developing community safety precautions?
How can we prevent gun violence in our neighborhoods?
