Indea Vaher, RL and SL artist and curator, recently made a guest appearance on the January 16, 2017 edition of “The Pamela Live Show.” Focusing on the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday and discussing King’s relevance in today’s society, Indea Vaher affirmed that Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy is not only relevant, but still tangible and real.
While images of King and his wife played on the Pamela Live Show’s slide show, Vaher stressed the importance of going beyond his “I Have A Dream” speech to better understand what King was about. King, she contends, fought for those impoverished, as well as avidly stood for the rights of disenfranchised workers. He also was against the Vietnam War and economic disparity.
Vaher also stressed how important it is for communities to mobilize in the midst of the U.S.’s transfer of presidential power. Now, Vaher said, is the time for communities (particularly black communities) to work toward incorporating self sufficiency techniques…all as a way of anticipating cuts in social programs and other vast changes within the U.S. Government.
