56] -- On Thurs., Feb. 13 from 4:30 to 5:30 PM, Have a Heart, Don't Eat Animals Whole Foods Protest, hosted by The Franny Project, WDC. Whole Foods believes it is okay to deceive customers by false labels like "humane" or "free-range." The truth is, those labels mean nothing. By definition humane is "having compassion or showing benevolence." Slitting an enslaved sentient being's throat does not fall under "humane." So speak up for these innocent animals who are murdered every day for human pleasure. Signs will be provided, just bring yourself (and a megaphone if you have one.) Protest at 1635 Boro Place, McLean, VA 22102. Visit https://www.facebook.com/events/679111475955026/.

58] – On Thurs., Feb. 13 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM, check out Baltimore: A History of Structural Racism, hosted by Baltimore Racial Justice Action at Jenkins Behavioral Science Building, Morgan State University, Baltimore 21251. See a screening of The Associated Black Charities film "Baltimore: A History of Structural Racism." How did Baltimore become Baltimore? It is hard to imagine the reality that Baltimore is the way it is because it is exactly how the system desired it to be. And so are the radicalized outcomes that we see. "Baltimore: A History of Structural Racism" exposes the rot beneath the glitter. Please note that attendees should park in the lot in front of Jenkins Hall. Please do not park in the Northwood Shopping Center parking lot. See https://www.facebook.com/events/572047480192196/.
59] – On Thurs., Feb. 13 from 7 to 10 PM, Diane Williams presents "The Life and Legacy of B.B. King" at Red Emma's Bookstore Coffeehouse, 1225 Cathedral St., Baltimore 21201. Blues legend B.B. King spent his life sharing the music of his soul, which shone relentlessly through hardship and triumph alike. He never wavered from his vocation, even as he gathered up other musicians in his wake and melded them into the harmony of his animating passion. In this intimate portrait of King, author Diane Williams offers a brief account of the monumental blues man’s life before settling in for a series of interviews with his bandmates and beloved family members, offering readers an invaluable opportunity to feel like they know King too.
