Love and War with Spoken Word Artist Andrea Gibson – YouTube

On the morning after the most unthinkable US election result, when the Black American US President will meet to talk about transition to the white man who has given license to unbridled bigotry, hatred, racism, xenophobia and so much more, this. Because the pain is so great, the despair globally pervasive, and because hope seems so forlorn… this.

If you ask how did this happen? Listen to the second poem. Yet hope must triumph,  love WILL triumph, and both live in our hearts and in our outstretched hands.

About Makere

A transplanted New Zealand Scots/Maori academic/grandmother/random singer and sometime activist, my life is shaped by a deep conviction of the necessity for active critical engagement in the multi-faceted global and local crises of being and survival of species that confront us in the 21st century, the urgency of re-visioning the meaning of thriving together, and the contribution of Indigenous knowledge systems to a truly sustainable and just global society.
