Chicago’s South Side: Benefit for BAsics Bus Tour
The Band Leader opened the evening with a shout-out to “the Revolution” and the band broke into the song “What’s going on.” It was an evening of Rhythm and Blues to benefit the BAsics Bus tour, the entire event put together by people whose family members were murdered by police. BAsics 1:13 provided a common focus for the evening. A banner was displayed on the front of the stage with pictures of 25 people killed by the police. The audience was visibly moved when the MC pointed out the picture of his son on the banner and recounted how his son was shot 18 times by the police.
