The San Francisco Mime Troupe
is in solidarity with all the protestors across the country who are standing up for the rights of Black Americans, and fighting against the brutality of the violent systemic racism that has always been fundamental to America.
To live without fear of death by the hands of police, to live without fear of death at the hands of neo-Confederate terrorists, to live without fear of economic oppression based on race - these are all things any American should be able to take for granted.
But the atrocities that are the root of those fears are baked into the foundations of this country. we know that the United States was founded on stolen Black labor, and that our institutions, the police specifically, were designed to maintain the inequality that benefits the owner class. We encourage you, our audience, to always be part of the revolutionary solutions to support the serious goal of dismantling white supremacy.
The MimeCast is a series of biographical podcast interviews of current and veteran members of the Tony and OBIE award-winning San Francisco Mime Troupe which focus on their personal stories before their time with SFMT, their development as artists, and their lives in general.
Hosted by SFMT member Michael Gene Sullivan
