Brother Issa not only sells his own beautiful artisanal jewelry, but he also gave back to his West Philly community in a big way by participating as a key business stakeholder in our Walnut Hill Neighborhood Plan Update in 2016. He is story #25 in our 52 Stories about 52nd series; read on to learn more about him! A Revolutionary Artisan Brother Issa has been a vendor of vision for over 40 years. His kiosk is filled with treasures from the African Diaspora as well as handmade artisan metal jewelry that he crafts himself. His Kiosk is located in front of retailer Babe’s at 110 South 52nd St., and you can usually find his space by following the music. The Ojays, Ohio Players, and Teddy Pendergrass are often heard emanating from the multitude of fragrant oils, incense, portraits of activists, and jewelry. He has owned physical stores in both Center City Philly and in Atlanta, and he has sold art on 52nd St. for over 15 years. Brother Issa takes pride in not only being an artisan but also a master teacher. He is keen on passing on his artisan skills to the next generation. If you’d like to learn more about his process, his politics, and his art, please visit his kiosk!

    After 40 years, first of MOVE 9 is paroled - but others denied
    On Saturday, Debbie Africa left the State Correctional Institution Cambridge Springs and, after 38 years, became the first of the MOVE Nine to be released on parole. She also said goodbye to two women she's been incarcerated with for four decades. Both were denied parole last week, for reasons Africa can't understand.

When the ‘Skeleton Crew’ becomes just a skeleton, from People’s Light

“Skeleton Crew” is extended through July 15 at People’s Light, 39 Conestoga Road, Malvern. 610-644-3500 or peopleslight.org.

    Review: When the 'Skeleton Crew' becomes just a skeleton, from People's Light
    The question at the Detroit plant that produces thousands of car parts a day is not just whether the place will close down. The persistent rumor along the assembly lines is that it will. The question is whether the skilled workers will get a financial package before they're led out the door.
