The Inauguration Wrecking Ball is offered in the belief that art and social justice have been inextricably linked in our country, The United States of America. Artists — be they writers, painters, poets, or musicians — can be a mirror or a window for an audience, they can be a soothing voice or a harsh reminder, they can inspire others to action, and they can inspire an audience to unite in peace. Jamaaladeen Tacuma has been compelled by recent political events to make a strong statement of resistance against normalizing the values of the incoming President Elect, his cabinet, appointees, and all powers of extreme right political movements. Thus he is gathering artists, poets, spoken word artists and musicians along with inspirational speakers from activist and political organizations from Philadelphia. Philadelphia is the city where our democracy was born. It is the perfect place to make this very important statement and to inform and educate the public on how to channel their feelings of anxiety, fear, and frustration into peaceful positive action.
