A panel discussion with journalists and community organizers Jordan Flaherty, Jesse Muhammad, and Victoria Law
Chancellor Day Hall, Montreal

This panel is one stop on a book and speaking tour, COMMUNITY AND RESISTANCE, of which all three panelists are a part, and which has been organized in part to launch Jordan Flaherty’s recently published Floodlines: Community and Resistance from Katrina to the Jena Six (Haymarket books, on sale in Montreal at the panel and booklaunch).

The COMMUNITY AND RESISTANCE tour seeks to communicate about current struggles for justice and liberation, from nooses hung in the northern Louisiana town of Jena to women organizing inside prisons, from resistance to school privatization to post-Katrina community organizing and cultural resistance. The tour also seeks to connect communities of liberation, and to build relationships between grassroots activists and independent media.

This discussion will include contributions from local activist Scott Weinstein (who volunteered with Common Ground Health Clinic after Katrina hit New Orleans) and will be facilitated by Professor Gada Mahrouse (Simone de Beauvoir Institute). The event will be an opportunity for community organizers to come together and have discussions around issues raised during the panel.

Jesse Muhammad: Energetic, inspiring and effective are just some of the words audiences have used to describe the writings and messages delivered by writer, news reporter, artist, publicist and photojournalist Jesse Muhammad. Jesse, a native of Houston, has been an official staff writer for the Final Call Newspaper (FCN) the only national Black-owned newspaper. Since that time, he has gained worldwide recognition for his consistent coverage of Hurricane Katrina and the continuing struggle of its survivors. In 2007, he was credited with bringing national and international attention to the case of the “Jena Six”, and helped to mobilize the 50,000 plus attendees to the historic “Jena Six” rally in September of that year.

Jordan Flaherty is a journalist and community organizer based in New Orleans. His new book, FLOODLINES: Community and Resistance from Katrina to the Jena Six was released this summer from Haymarket Press. For more information on the book, see floodlines.org. Jordan has been a regular correspondent on both Democracy Now and News and Notes. As a white southerner who speaks honestly about race, Jordan Flaherty has been regularly published in Black progressive forums such as BlackCommentator.org and Black Agenda Report, and is a regular guest on Black radio stations and programs such as Keep Hope Alive With Reverend Jesse Jackson. Jordan is also an editor of Left Turn Magazine, a national publication dedicated to covering social movements.

Victoria Law is a writer, photographer and mother. In 1996, she helped start Books Through Bars-New York City, a group that sends free books to prisoners nationwide. Since 2002, she has worked with women incarcerated nationwide to produce Tenacious: Art and Writings from Women in Prison and has facilitated having incarcerated women’s writings published in larger publications. Her book Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles of Incarcerated Women (PM Press 2009) is the culmination of over seven years of listening to, writing about and supporting incarcerated women nationwide and resulted in Victoria winning the 2009 PASS (Prevention for a Safer Society) Award.
