It was amazing to see teenagers, college students, young professionals, and even a few parents take to the stage and share their thoughts and reflections about 1984, human rights, and justice. Not only did the performers span across generations, but the performances themselves ranged in art form from musical pieces, poetry, and spoken word.
For much of the last 25 years, Sikhs have been portrayed in a negative light around the events of 1984. We have quietly criticized the media – and while on the defensive – tried to point out inaccuracies about what actually happened...but it seemed we never really had a voice...Saturday night, that voice was heard loud and clear!
As the show came to a close Saturday night…the jakaaray kept going and the audience didn’t want to leave their seats...I kept thinking to myself, the show might be over...but the movement has only begun!
