Add comment on:Justice for Oscar Grant Event Faces Venue Change Order, RPS Gallery, Oakland, 10/16/09: audio and video
Throughout the month of October, the Rock Paper Scissors Collective is hosting an art exhibit presented by the Campaign to End the Death Penalty featuring the works of Kevin Cooper, James P. Anderson and Eddie Vargas, all condemned by the state of California to death row or life sentence at San Quentin prison. Several related events have been held this month at the RPS Gallery on Telegraph Avenue, including an evening looking back at the case of state-executed Stan Tookie Williams and another, "Live from Death Row," with Kevin Cooper telephoning in to the gallery. A Justice for Oscar Grant event was held on October 16th. Family members and other advocates spoke, a group of activists performed a capella, and two short movies were screened for a standing-room only crowd of supporters.
