WE INSIST! is a jazz and Black arts action community and an evolving project to convey a True history. WE INSIST! is intended to stimulate discussion, to exist in collaboration with the movement to protect Black lives, and to offer arts, educational, media, and business communities topics and possible positions on pressing intersectional topics such as: education, children, hiring practices, gentrification, patriarchy, sexuality, and the eradication of Black economic subservience and state-sponsored murder and brutality. Through the heart of jazz, WE INSIST! forges an anti-racist and anti-sexist path with the Black liberation movement.
This is a growing BIPOC-led non-hierarchical world movement of co-conspirators aiming to end white supremacy through honest collaboration, open dialogue, radical imagination, action, and the arts. Let's talk, start a chapter in your town, and change the world together.
