Harlem Bakers for BA Everywhere

March 16, 2015 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us


From readers:

We have been baking once again in Harlem and the Bronx. A core of us came together and baked collectively—at first only three of us but then others also joined in—baking in their own homes and donating what they baked. Those of us baking collectively also watched the simulcast of the Dialogue between Cornel West and Bob Avakian and another time watched Stepping into the Future while we baked. We all read the excerpts from the interview with Ardea Skybreak on attending the Dialogue, to guide what we were doing. Many orders were taken at the BA Everywhere dinner Feb. 15, but we also baked a lot more than was ordered to be sold on International Women's Day at Revolution Books. Some other people in the projects in Harlem sold our baked goods as well.

We are fighting to raise big money for the launch of the film of the historic Dialogue between Cornel West and Bob Avakian. So we’re excited to report that after expenses, we have raised $225 to date and we want to invite and challenge everyone to help us raise a whole lot more!

People can take part in many ways. First: anyone who can, should match what we have already raised, making our efforts so far mean a whole lot more. Also people all across the country can jump in and start their owns teams of bakers together with people who want to learn to bake and people who are excited to buy delicious homemade baked goods to help build for and fund this momentous launch. Just think what it means that so many more people can be reached once this film is launched on the web!
