On Saturday, March 21st, the family of Weusi Olusola and Pioneers for Peace invite you to honor and celebrate Weuisi's life by committing to be a pioneer.
“We want every youth, adult, block club, organization, school, fraternity, sorority, musician, high school band, private and government agency, corporation and elected official in southeast Michigan to come to the park, grab T-shirts and march,” said Saba Gebrai, director of the Park West Foundation, which worked with Olusola on several peace efforts.
Weusi died of cancer six days after receiving a lifetime achievement award from the Park West Foundation at a gathering attended by hundreds of metro Detroiters, including Southfield Mayor Brenda Lawrence, Detroit Mayor Kenneth Cockrel Jr, Detroit City Councilwoman JoAnn Watson and representatives from the Detroit Police Department, Boy Scouts of America, the NAACP, the Million Mom March, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the FBI, the Michigan State Police, the Detroit Rehabilitation Institute, members of Pioneers for Peace, hundreds of friends and family and entertainer Bill Cosby.
Make a commitment to life, peace and love. Make a commitment to invest in youth and community. Join us on March 21st.
