Today in Solidarity: Family of Mike Brown join protesters outside of STL Courthouse, demanding the immediate arrest of their son’s killer, Officer Darren Wilson.

Here’s a blast from the past (released in 1998) that we can all enjoy, Kirikou and the Sorceress.

Drawn from familiar cultural elements of West Africa, this traditional animated film tells the story of Kirikou, a newborn boy who can speak and walk right after cutting his umbilical cord.. He is born into a village where an evil sorceress has cast a cruel spell; drying up their spring and kidnapping just about all the men. Her name is Karaba and she is a beautiful, but cruel woman. Kirikou wastes no time with setting off to find the plague of his village and to …  (keep reading)
