Carl Gibson is among them.

He says:

"What sets The After Party apart is that 365 days out of the year it is a humanitarian organization. The way we organize politically, what sets us apart is that we are finding needs within the community, and then working to meet them using the community's assets."

And, so is Radio Rahim, another After Party founding member and, yes the real life persona behind the character in Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing says the following:

"There is a little bit of Radio Rahim in everybody (...) we all love our music and we have outrage about different things."

How will After Party be different than other 3rd party alternatives?

Why start a political party at all?

And should Mookie have thrown that garbage can through the window of Sal's Pizzeria?

All of those questions asked and answered this week on Acronym TV. What do you stand for?
