I get warned off from working with the Local Library – I offended the library assistant cause I talked to some undocumented mothers and a local community member thought I was  out of my territory – translation – don’t walk in my back yard.

Coffee cups and book marks for the participants – all individually drawn and gifted

The community takes over and Perry Bennett has conversations with black men about the first drawing – a Latino man in the park –  audio by black men!    hmmmmm

I start taking Boxing lessons – Flat on my back for days.
Working with Fatima – 16 and boxing for life – out shining me – her dedication, energy and generosity – my teens watch TV and complain if they have to do the washing up.
