A Play Reading written by Melda Beaty
Directed by Adleane Hunter
Marks, Mississippi, November 4, 2008. America is on the eve of electing its first Black President. Amidst the town's excitement over Barack Obama, Carrie Honey grieves her son's tragic death and after years of failed attempts to seek justice, Carries is no longer interested in life's celebrations. But when a scandal in town rocks this historic day, a past secret is revealed that renews her faded faith.

You are invited to our 2nd Annual Downtown LA Stand Down
"Stand Down" is a military term for a time of rest and recovery for exhausted combat units. Today, Stand Down refers to the state-side grassroots, community-based outreach program designed to give the nation's estimated 200,000 homeless veterans combating life on the streets a day and sometimes two or three days in a temporary oasis off the streets.
We are a group of artists, veterans, entertainers, recovering homeless individuals, and simply advocates for the elimination of homelessness--all working or living or caring about Downtown Los Angeles and its homeless population on Skid Row. We're planning for our 2nd Annual Downtown LA (DTLA) Stand Down, bringing individuals, organizations and volunteers together in an effort to ease life of our homeless neighbors, brothers and sisters, for one day until the task is no longer needed.
Saturday, November 16, 1013 -- 8:00am - 3:00pm
The Vortex 2341 East Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA. 90021
1-Day Stand Down: On-site Barber Shop; photographic portraits; clothing & personal care give away's; on-site Internet radio complements of Skid Row Studios; housing eligibility; employment resources; health & psychological counseling and treatment, including dental services; hot breakfast & nutritious lunch; entertainment (Doo-Wop a capella group).
How You Can Help
Sign up to be a volunteer at www.volunteerspot.com/login/entry/806724456019. All you need is an email address and you will be added to the volunteer roster for the event.
Your contribution will assure our ability to serve the men, women, and members of their families who depend on events like our Stand Down to replenish socks, underwear, jackets, blankets, back packs, clothing, shoes and hope.
To get involved, please make a generous contribution right now! We have been awarded a Stand Down operations grant in the amount of $1900.00 from CalVets. No food can be purchased with that funding and we must spend funds and submit receipts to receive re-imbursement for allowed purchases (venue fees/transportation expenses/security/pre and post event clean up and strike/sound equip/photo studio/radio Internet cafe)
Our perks for each of our donors will include a shout out in the event program, on the air from Skid Row Studios, a souvenir event wristband, hand-made note card, breakfast on us with our team at The Nickel Cafe in LA's Skid Row, a phone message recorded at our event from a vet and portrait photo collection calendar.
"My small donation won't make a difference, I can't afford to help"
None of us can afford not to try!!!
We will be able to increase the numbers served this year. Over the course of one-day last year May 6, 2012) we served over one hundred homeless and recovering homeless men, women and family members. This year, we anticipate 200-300 individuals.
Our event combines all of the service and information providers related to housing, health and spiritual healing with what motivates us professionally: acting, writing and creating. That means our event takes on an artistic vision that includes the individual's ability to exercise curiosity and imagination: creating art, watching entertainment or simply relaxing for one brief day.
Other Ways You Can Help
Some people just can't contribute, but that doesn't mean they can't help: Help us get the word out in the ways that work for you. Help make some noise about our campaign!
