exclusive feature
Brian Hughes Kasoro & Shelley Martin

Prolific scholar Mahmoud El-Kati, legendary emcee I Self Devine, professor Keith Mayes, radio host Camille Thomas and others gathered in August of 2006 at the historic First Avenue in Minneapolis for the Twin Cities Community Forum, sponsored by The Liberator Magazine.

The discussion was four parts:
1) What is happening? / What has happened in our community?
2) Why?
3) Why is there no community? When did it go wrong? When was it damaged or destroyed?
4) What can we do?
