Vote, It Ain't Illegal Yet!
Directed by author/filmmaker/journalist and longtime Fort Greene resident Nelson George, this special BRIC commission honors the 50th anniversary of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 with a moving and exciting combination of film, music, and spoken word. This ambitious exploration of American polls yesterday and today celebrates and recognizes the journey we have collectively undertaken towards equality at the voting booth—and the distance we have left to travel. Vote, It Ain't Illegal Yet! will include contributions by Burning Spear, Vernon Reid, Maya Azucena, Roger Guenveur Smith, Carl Hancock Rux, Ramya Ramana, and many more. With musical direction by D-NICE and an opening set by Fredericks Brown. On-site voter registration coordinated by NYC Votes.
