Special appearance by emcee, and educator Hasan Salaam at Right 2 Dream Too this Wednesday
Portland OR– February 26, 2013—New Jersey musician and organizer Hasan Salaam will visit Right 2 Dream Too in downtown Portland this Wednesday afternoon. Salaam, who is on an extended lecture tour of the Pacific Northwest, plans to tour the rest area for houseless people at NW Fourth and Burnside. He will also make time for photos, and interview, and speaking with the R2DToo members and organizers from Right 2 Survive.
As result of his strong opinions and socially conscious lyrics, Salaam is frequently requested as a speaker and performer. His lecture “From The Spirituals to Hip Hop” is a multimedia musical exploration of the history of Black music, Black culture and Black resistance. His music paints vivid pictures of the commonalities that bind us: struggle, love, and pain and has been described as the “soundtrack for social change”.  It’s this ability, to touch people at their core, which has garnered Hasan a loyal fan base all over the world.
“We are honored to have Hasan Salaam take time out from his tour to visit with us,” says Sophia Kinhnarath, a member of Right 2 Survive who met Salaam at a social justice conference in Eugene last week. “We are inviting our allies and supporter to join us Thursday afternoon. We all can learn a lot from Hasan’s message and his organizing experience.”
