The 3rd Annual Woody Brooklyn Hoot on

and the great audience who came to sing.

 

The world lost a great voice for truth and justice with the passing of Danny Schechter on March 19. He was more than an award winning journalist. He was a creative force with moral clarity. He was the tireless News Dissector, a mentor and an inspiration to those
who were fortunate enough to know and work with him.

You can read about his life here, and you can see and hear an interview with him at Democracy Now!

I had the pleasure of participating
at this year's MLK weekend open mic

at my favorite progressive coffeehouse,
the Peoples' Voice Cafe in NYC.
I thought it would be most appropriate to sing a song written by Matt Jones.

2015

is here, and so are we.
Recent news stories from our streets and our nation's capital remind us how grim our task can appear.  Don't lose heart. Remember, you have a voice and you are not alone. Find your friends.
Count your blessings. Transcend the ugliness with your creativity and your love.

Get your rest.  Stay healthy.  Stay strong.  We need you.  Let's get to work together!

In Solidarity and Spirit     ~  joel

The Best of 2014
 

December 12, 2014 at the
STARK REALITY OPEN MIC
in Manhattan

I was featured at this showcase in NYC. The night before the House of Representatives voted for the bill that will fund and keep our government running. Republicans stuck goodies for the banking industry in there at the 11th hour written by their friends at CitiGroup. Enough Democrats voted for it to pass. There was other stuff in that bill too that the Senate passed and the President signed in the days that followed.
I am still livid.
I took my energy about it and my attitude to the stage and began my set with the video to the right. -->

December 15, 2014 at the
UTES Got Talent at New Utrecht High School
song: "When I Was Young" by Matt Jones

Matt Jones devoted his life to the struggle of social justice in this country. Some time after the 1960s he articulated what we all now know - that the fight for freedom and equality has not ended at all. His song frames this stark perception vividly.
