Video Address to City Council

In a retaliatory measure, the five members of the SSMI who were arrested were banned from City Council meetings for two years by the City Manager.

In an attempt not to be silenced and to exercise their democratic rights, Cherrell Brown and other members of the Spirit of the Sit-in Movement Initiative recorded this video to play at Council. When the City Manager found out about the video minutes before it was played during the public comment section of the following City Council meeting, he refused to let it be played. Eric Ginsburg, a member of the organization, read the text of her speech.
