Hurricane Katrina, Ten Years Later.

It’s been ten years since Hurricane Katrina ravaged the 
Gulf Coast, particularly hitting hard the city of New Orleans,
Louisiana. We at Manifesto wanted to extend our thoughts
and prayers to those who stayed and rebuilt, and those who
continue to. To the people displaced to all points south and
even north who couldn’t go home. To those lives lost in the
murky and rising waters, those who suffered in the hell of
those days in the late summer. Below are some links to really
good articles we hope you read to get more familiar with
the situation and the history. 



Happy New Year to You All!!

To all of our readers, whether you’re new or
have been with us a while or from the beginning,
we want to wish you a Happy New Year and
all of the best for the year to come! We here
at Manifesto are thankful for you and hope
you will keep on rocking with us.

We Are Ferguson, Missouri.

By now, you no doubt know of the murder of young
Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri last Saturday.
While the officer who shot him has been identified 
as Darrell Wilson of the Ferguson Police Department,
Officer Wilson has not been brought up on charges.
The incensed people of Ferguson have been protesting
loudly and visibly which is their right. They have been
met with an openly mocking and hostile police force
that resembles a paramilitary force plucked from a
Call Of Duty video game. The people of Ferguson have
been beset with tear gas, smoke, and rubber bullets.
The news journalists on the ground from multiple
outlets both major and independent have been
gassed, arrested and threatened. It is oppressive and
reprehensible behavior. Behavior that happens as
night falls. Without the power of social media outlets
such as Twitter primarily among others, without
citizen journalists setting up livestreams, without the
people rising up and telling every detail from the outset,
without the courage of the people of Ferguson, Michael
Brown may have been swept aside. We here at Manifesto
feel that justice must be done. Michael could’ve been our
friend. Our brother, cousin. Our son. And so, we ask our
readers to keep their eyes on Ferguson and all that is
taking place. Below, we’ve listed some info so that if
you feel the need to lend some support you can.

this week. They’re dedicated to providing  
fully accurate and detailed of what’s taking 
place down there. They’ve also got a link for
donations to protesters on the front lines as
well here:


Salute to Hank Aaron on the 40th Anniversary of Breaking The MLB Home Run Record

On April 8th, 1974, Henry ‘Hank’ Aaron captured the
collective minds of America as he broke a record many
thought would stand untouched: the Major League
Baseball home run record previously set by New York
Yankees legend Babe Ruth. Doing so as a Black man
earned him serious ire and hate and death threats,
but it endeared him to millions. To this day when you
mention Hank Aaron, words like ‘grace’ and ‘class’
aren’t too far behind. We at Manifesto Magazine salute
Hank Aaron for his indelible contribution to history.
