Keith Lamar in Conversation with Eric Mann

Keith Lamar is a WRONGFULLY-CONVICTED Black man who faces state-sanctioned murder in just under a year for crimes he can now prove he did not commit—his execution date was previously set for November 16, 2023. Keith was just granted a reprieve and his execution date has been moved to January 13, 2027.

Freedom First began as a concert series in the summer of 2020 on the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan shortly after the murder of George Floyd, and at a time the country was shut down due to Covid. The aim of these beautiful shows has been to raise public awareness of yet another grave injustice being done in our names, and to seek support for the Campaign for Justice for Keith Lamar while we still can…

Keith is still breathing. Let’s fight for him to keep breathing and get free!

Every ticket sold will help Keith’s struggle to get back into court. Due to recent developments, he has a good shot, a clear pathway, and he needs our help for this legal push now more than ever.
