"For me, the most important lesson
[of the Freedom Movement] is that by respecting the fact that fellow activists could passionately disagree over strategy and tactics—yet remain allies—they strengthened SNCC and the Movement as a whole."

April 9th - TOY SOLDIERS at Freight and Salvage

It brings me much joy to announce a joint collaboration between Each One Reach One & Urban Healing Tour to support incredible youth theater programs in the Bay Area. EORO, who for the last past 10 years has been doing play-writing workshops inside of San Francisco Juvenile Hall also created the only GED program inside of Juvie. The GED program alone has graduated over 200 youth and what's so amazing is that it came from a Theater program. I personally have worked with EORO for the last 8 years aside from my work with Colored Ink.  We thought this partnership would be a match made in heaven.  UHT will be showcasing our amazing multi-media, hip hop theater production entitled "Toy Soldierzs" which deals with youth violence. We have some exciting news; a portion of the proceeds will going towards "Toy Soldierz" being performed @ the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in New York on May 4-6, 11-13, 2012. It's a really exciting time for me and my organization. God is good.  Check out the latest trailer for "Toy Soldierz" below.  Spread the word to your family, friends, co-workers, clergy and anyone else you think would benefit from this performance.  This night and cause is very important to our community.  Thank you again

URBAN HEALING TOUR PROJECT. The Urban Healing Tour (UHT) is a multimedia hip hop theatre platform that supports productions for social change and community advocacy coupled with arts-based workshops centered around healing and utilizing the arts in the process of recovery and learning to forgive. Projects that are produced through the Urban Healing Tour integrate the live stage, film/video, music, dance, and spoken word. Initially the tour was a singular project in advocacy against gun violence, but the Producer, Javier Reyes and Director, Cassandra A. Henderson saw the need and potential for expanding the vision; and in December of 2010, renamed the play itself TOY SOLDIERS serving under the umbrella of the Urban Healing Tour. UHT was created to be appeasing to all audiences; but primarily focuses on low-income, urban audiences particularly youth ages 13-25
