Los Angeles – Socio-political analyst Cleo Manago stands his ground with Sean Hannity, on Fox News’ “Hannity” tonight, Friday, July 19 at 9:00 p.m. ET in a discussion about race relations in America in general and also as it pertains to the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case.
Manago appears alongside Compton’s own, Pastor Michael J.T. Fisher of the Greater Zion Church Family. Fisher is leading the 13th Annual “March 4 a Cause” Peace March in Compton, on Saturday, July 20, in conjunction with Rev. Al Sharpton’s call for a “Justice for Trayvon” National Day of Action. One hundred vigils in cities across the country are scheduled to take place at noon as a call to action pushing for the Department of Justice to file federal charges against George Zimmerman. The vigils will lead up to the Saturday, August 24, 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Justice led by Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin Luther King III,.
As the board chair for BMADD: Black Males Against our Defamation and Demise, Cleo Manago has been an outspoken advocate for the human rights, well-being, dignity, self-respect and protection of Black men and Black people for over two decades. The Trayvon Martin travesty brings home issues he has been mandating for years. “The racial profiling, stalking and killing of an unarmed innocent teen should be protested, and yet, Trayvon Martin was the victim of a larger problem stemming from America’s wholesale dehumanization of Black men. Now that there is public resistance to legally sanctioned executions, can Black males stop being America’s favorite prey – that is the larger question?” Manago deliberates.
