All Diamonds are Blood Diamonds Event with Colored Ink

7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Other
Organizer/Author:
Wendy Snyder
Location Details:
Brava Theater, 2789 - 24th St., San Francisco

As the eyes of the world focus on the issue of Africa’s blood or conflict diamonds, this tour exposes the reality that even the so-called legitimate diamond trade is dripping in the blood of African people.

This co-sponsored event will feature leaders from the Uhuru Movement and culture performed by Colored Ink, hip hop theater.

Omavi Bailey is the Director of Burning Spear Media, a growing multi-faceted revolutionary news and information institution that presents the views and aspirations of African working people worldwide.

Dr. Aisha Fields is a physicist who coordinates the All African People’s Development and Empowerment Projects, working with people in Africa, and elsewhere in the African world, to develop sustainable, renewable electrification and water purification programs in their communities.

Penny Hess chairs the African People's Solidarity Committee which builds support from the white community for reparations to African people and for the African liberation movement. She is author of Overturning the Culture of Violence and All Diamonds are Blood Diamonds.

Making their case with videos, PowerPoint presentations and expert testimony, Bailey, Fields and Hess show that all diamonds are blood diamonds. As Mr. Bailey states, “The entire diamond industry is based in the colonial legacy of 500 years of European plunder of the African continent which has enriched the Western world to the exact extent that it has impoverished African people.”
