People across the nation & the world have mourned the violent murder of 33 year old L.A. rapper Nipsey Hussle. In Nipsey's death, many saw the terror & tragedy that far too many of our lesser known kinfolk have suffered. His murder caused so many to re-live the all too familiar pain of seeing the beauty, gifts, & potential of our brightest taken far too soon.
How do we heal from this trauma?
How do we stop the violence in our communities & our world?
How do we become instruments of peace?
These are age-old questions that were also on the mind of oppressed people in the 1st Century who had looked to another 33 year older from a "hood" called Nazareth for hope & freedom.
Is there a connection between the pain of 1st century Nazareth, the pain of Crenshaw, & the pain of Northeast & East Winston?
Join The Drum Majors Alliance on Friday April 19th @ 830pm as we wrestle with these questions, call our community to embrace the things that make for peace, & remember the death of Jesus AND loved ones we've lost to violence this year. We cannot afford to close our eyes to the pain & injustice all around us. We must remember The Cross & #StayWoke!
