Initiated March 2006 everyday Angelinos were invited to write their unadulterated opinion on my 1973 VW Bug. At the historic May 1st (2006) demonstrations the car became a vehicle for the voices of the more than 600.000 people who marched through the streets of Los Angeles. Since then the writing has grown vividly and without intervention creating a dialogue that stretches across the social and ethnically segregated boundaries of the city. Traveling from Skid Row to BelAir, Sunset Blvd to Rodeo Drive, City Hall to Watts and beyond, Free Speech on Wheels is an assemblage of voices that captures the diverse communities of the L.A. sprawl.
