Below are pictures from ‘Vote Like Your Life Depends On It’ at the Apollo Theater on Monday night. A good event for the community, featuring Al Sharpton, Michael Eric Dyson, Keli Goff, Dr. James Peterson, Elinor Tatum, Judith Browne Dianis, and Jonathan Hicks. The panel discussed topics ranging from Voter ID laws, to education, to providing children in the African-American community with better standards to live by. If there is any one thing to take away from this event, it’s that community involvement and activism is not an election year activity, it’s an every day movement that must be taken seriously by members of the community. Don’t depend on your president for change, depend on yourself and your neighbors – because change begins at home.
