Peace of Art

Rapper and drummer April King and spoken word artist Danae Davis performed at UCSB on Tuesday as part of the touring Right to Resist campaign, which rallies students to counter military recruitment on campuses. “We have the power to stop blood from spilling with our purchases,” chanted King. “So invest in what nurtures instead of what’s hurting us.” Nico Amado — a UCSB grad and Right to Resist co-founder — said the group aims to use creativity and art to promulgate social change. Earlier on Tuesday, Right to Resist conducted a workshop for a Dos Pueblos High School class. They compared financial inducements offered by the military to civilian opportunities such as college financial aid. — Martha Sadler
