THE 3CANAL SHOW 2020 RETURNS HOME TO THE BIG BLACK BOX!!!
Children, Children Gather round,
The ark, the ark is coming down
And it go take ten thousand to bar this one
Tell them a REVOLUTION coming…
Yes 2020 IN T+T is the GOLDEN Anniversary of REVOLUTION + Recognition of the POWER OF THE PEOPLE in the form of the Black Power Revolution and Army Mutiny of 1970.
2020 = 50 years of Black Power = 50 years of Revolution
2020 is also the GOLDEN anniversary of the landmark Rapso recording Blow Way; an undisputed anthem of knowledge of self and affirmation of self over contempt of self, from the seminal artist Lancelot Layne.
2020 = 50/50
50 years of ‘Blow Way’ = 50 years of Affirmation + Valuation of Self.
2020 is also 50 years since Walcott say: “The future of West Indian militancy lies in ARTS…”
“The future of West Indian militancy lies in art. All revolutions begin amateurishly, with forged or stolen weapons but the West Indian artist knew the need for revolt without knowing what weapons to use …”
Derek Walcott “What the Twilight Says” 1970
Hence 2020 is a call to arms
A call to challenge the order
A call to speak Truth to Power
And invoke New Possibilities
Walcott also said “The future happens no matter how much we scream…”
3canal say 2020: The Future is HAPPENING. So Stop Screaming. Is Time for ACTiON NOW!
A Revolution Coming – Yuh Ready?
‘It is in revolutionary periods that the culmination of previous trends and the beginning of new ones appear.’
C. L. R. James Black Jacobins. 1938
Let us make a space to make space for something new to emerge…
TIME TO CLAIM A SPACE AND MAKE A STATEMENT
TIME TO SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER AND CHALLENGE THE ORDER AND BRING DOWN THE POWER
THIS IS THE AGE OF THE FOOL
THE JESTER THE JOKER THE SACRED CLOWN
THAT HAS THE POWER
TO TURN THE UPSIDE DOWN,
THE RIGHTEOUS FOOL
THE UNWITTING WARRIOR
LIKE THE SMALL BOY DAVID
WITH A SLING AND A STONE
WHO HAS THE POWER
TO CHALLENGE THE ORDER
BRING DOWN GOLIATH
WITH ONE MIGHTY BLOW…
INSIDE THIS SESSION IS THE SWEET SENSATION OF KNOWLEDGE OF SELF
AND THE GOOD VIBRATION OF LOVE OF SELF
AND THE MANIFESTATION OF BEAUTY IN PERPETUITY
AS WE COME TOGETHER IN TRUE COMMUNITY
TO WALK IN OUR BEAUTY AND BRING DOWN THE POWER
AND CELEBRATE AND EMPOWER AND ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER
TO BE THE BEST THAT WE MAY BE RIGHT NOW…
RIGHT NOW IS TIME TO FORTIFY YUHSELF AND INVOKE THE SPIRIT OF LOVE AND WALK IN YUH BEAUTY AND GIVE THANKS AND PRAISES FOR ALL THE BLESSINGS WE ARE ABOUT TO RECEIVE.
