Feed The Movement Hunger Strike
#FeedTheMovement, located at the Alena Museum in Oakland, CA, was the exhibition of movement fragmentation and its consequences. Its feature installation was a live, 100 day hunger strike performed by 400+1 Co-Founders, Kristina Brown and Njera Keith. The purpose of their strike, and of this exhibit, is to galvanize eight members of the African Diaspora to commit to 400+1’s L1 collective, the first step toward a Black unified front.
We need every individual, every organization, and every member of the Diaspora to invest in a framework that connects us all. But we must start with the community’s L1s. We need EIGHT INDIVIDUALS to step forward to help us lead the charge. And until they do, until the community gives up on division, on exhaustion, on trauma, and on mere survivalism, we won’t eat. We won’t sustain ourselves until the movement is sustained.
