Activist and poet Ewuare Osayande joined other speakers including Pam Africa at a speak-out/teach-in for Marissa Alexander, African American mother serving a 20 year sentence for defending herself without killing anyone in the same state (FL) that failed to arrest George Zimmerman immediately after killing Trayvon Martin. The event, held at the corner of 52nd and Market Streets in Philadelphia, PA, was organized by Iresha Picot and Jamila K. Wilson.
