The following are photos from a rally that was held on Day 6 of the Fast 4 Education at Frank Ogawa Plaza. Thanks to the City Manager for allowing us to hold the rally without a permit, and going home early to finish her work at home. A bunch of folks inspired downtown with beats, words, and guitar for most of the day...

Flyer for event and some names of performers, sorry I didn't write down everyone's names, though I think I can identify most of the folks.

He is really good, an amazingly friendly guy, and he's wise to the realities around him.

These guys are amazing mc's and amazing folks. During the sound check I couldn't tell the difference between the vocal tracks on Hip Hop 4 Respect(ie Mos Def, et al.)and Gabe's mic check.

Kiwi definitely had skills and was one of my favorite performers of the day, though everyone was amazing, and brought their own style and passion. He had a drinking problem, aka he spilled water on himself while trying to drink it from a bottle, but hopefully he will seek treatment soon.

More pics from the rest of the rally to follow...
