River Wise Magazine – Winter Spring 2019

Rest In Power, Mama Lila

As we continue to mourn this great loss in our community, remember her family, close friends, and comrades. A legend, mother, sister, wife, a righteous woman of immovable conviction, water warrior, tireless champion for the people and challenger of the status quo, fierce anti-racist, a trainer and educator of generations, Lila Mae Leaks Cabbil will be sorely missed. The family has asked that donations be made to The People’s Water Board in honor of Lila Cabbil.

Congrats, Mama Aneb!

Aneb Kgositsile, or Dr. Gloria House, is the latest recipient of one of the biggest arts honors bestowed on Detroiters for a lifetime of work.

She is 2019’s Kresge Eminent Artist, an annual award reserved for those who’ve made distinguished contributions to the arts and the community at large. It comes with a $50,000 prize. You can read more about her honor here.

Ending White Supremacy, Here, and Now
The physical destruction of White Supremacy in all of its embodiments requires a political clarity about the moment in which we are living. How much of this still applies today? Of the failure of so-called White allies to support unapologetic calls for uncompromising Black liberation in our lifetime, is El Hajj Malik El Shabazz not speaking prophetically then about our now?  Listen with intent to act.
