This petition was created to get people involved in making the Slave Theater in Brooklyn, NY, located on Fulton Street in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood a Historic Landmark. We sent in the paper work last year for landmark status and got rejected. The Landmark Association in New York didn't see the importance in making it a landmark. We must show that we have the community behind us. Let's show them the power in numbers. They have been trying to steal and sell the Slave Theater since the early 90's. Now the Honorable Judge John Phillips has passed on to a new dimension and the Slave Theater is for now SALE!!! "THIS SUCCESSFUL, CONSCIOUS, BUSINESS MINDED BROTHA, ONCE WORTH 10 MILLION DOLLARS DIED BROKE AND PENNILESS DUE TO THE THEFT OF HIS MONEY AND PROPERTY FROM THE MANY COURT APPOINTED GUARDIANS. THIS MAN IS A POLITICAL PRISONER IN HIS OWN COMMUNITY. NO SEEDS TO PASS HIS LEGACY ON." I myself along with Crucial Arts want to give the power and control back to the community by saving, claiming and buying the Slave Theater. "THE SLAVE THEATER IS LOCATED ON FULTON STREET IN THE HEART OF BED-STUY IN BROOKLYN. OVER THE YEARS IN THE PAST, THE SLAVE THEATER WAS USED FOR WEEKLY RALLIES AND MOVIE SHOWINGS. WE ALL KNOW THAT THE ONCE MOVIE THEATERS THAT WERE IN MOST BLACK COMMUNITIES ARE GONE. HOWEVER, WHAT MAKES THE SLAVE THEATER SO AMAZING IS THE POWERFUL NAME THAT FORCE BLACK PEOPLE TO REMEMBER THE HISTORY OF AMERICA, AND THE POWERFUL IMAGES THAT ALIGN THE WALLS INSIDE THE THEATER, 'VISIT THE HOMELAND OF THE AFRICAN SLAVES' AND A MESSAGE TO BLACK PEOPLE,'WHO ARE YOU" TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE SLAVE THEATER AND SEE CURRENT UPDATED INFO, LOG ONTO: www.myspace.com/savetheslavetheater TO DONATE MONEY TO HELP BUY THE SLAVE THEATER, GO TO: http://apps.facebook.com/causes/285379/21741824m=5ec6990d "When spider webs unite, they can tie up a lion." - Ethiopian Proverb
