An Invitation from King and Kenyatta
Shortly after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Robert King left New Orleans and settled in Austin, Texas. After more than a decade of living in Austin, King and his partner, Kenyatta have returned to Louisiana and they want to share their new home and their new life with the many Angola 3 supporters and comrades fighting for social justice, next weekend in their home in Westwego.
They'll be hosting a homecoming home warming on Sunday, January 27th from 2PM on. Contact Robert at if you need the address or directions and join them in their celebration.
Now Featured on Youtube: Canadian Filmmaker Ron Harpelle's "Hard Time" and "In Security"
If you have not yet seen them, two excellent films by Canadian filmmaker Ron Harpelle (shown in the photo above with Robert King) are now available for viewing on Youtube.
Harpelle's 2014 film, "Hard Time," is centered around a lengthy interview that Harpelle conducted with Robert King. The film, "In Security," about the history and politics of barbed wire, fences, border walls, and the broader police state, is a timely re-release given the present-day context where human rights activists are working to oppose the racist border wall sought by President Trump.
