Allan Buchman

"We're dealing with a national censorship. Where it's most insiudiuous is where it's self-censorship, so you don't even allow yourself to think certain things, or consider certain things, because you don' think they will be received well either by your auidiences, or your board, or the media. That's starting to loosen up a litle bit because as MLK said, when we stop speaking out about things that matter, that's the begginning of the end of our life. So I think that right now we need to encourgae or amplify the voices of disconent."

- Allan Buchman, director of The Culture Project and its currently running Impact Festival, commenting on New York One's "On Stage," September 9, 2006.
