I made this piece in 2010 for a fundraiser for the Black Coalition for AIDS Prevention in Toronto (www.black-cap.org). Black CAP is an organization that works to reduce HIV/AIDS in Toronto’s Black, African and Caribbean communities and enhance the quality of life of Black people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.

Recently, it was included in the Certain Days Calendar (http://www.certaindays.org/?q=inside). Its the image for August! The month of ‘Black August’ and ‘Prisoners’ Justice Day’….and more!

About Certain Days:

Certain Days: Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar
The calendar is a joint fundraising and educational project between outside organizers in Montreal and Toronto, and three political prisoners being held in maximum-security prisons in New York State: David Gilbert, Robert Seth Hayes and Herman Bell. The initial project was suggested by Herman, and has been shaped throughout the process by all of our ideas, discussions, and analysis. All of the members of the outside collective are involved in day-to-day organizing work other than the calendar, on issues ranging from refugee and immigrant solidarity to community media to prisoner justice. We work from an anti-imperialist, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, feminist, queer and trans positive position.
