Fundraiser for IAMSUMBODY & MO MOGIC POETRY | MUSIC | DANCE | FOOD | FULL BAR
We welcome you to this years liberation Party! Junteenth is U.S. holiday honoring African American heritage by commemorating the announcement of the abolition of Slavery.
Come to receive Rhythm and Poetry intentionally set to heal and remind us of our Mountaintops, Kingdoms and Queendoms. Through each person on the stage the audience can take a journey in poetry and music to face the challenge of gaining liberation and the joy of overcoming the barriers.
PROCEEDS: The Junteenth Healing Poetree Show will raise money towards these two parts:
1. Bay Area Youth Healing Consortium: A 3day Healing Session for Bay area youth to address and confront culture class and self esteem in a personal way with opportunities to build alternative methods to personal growth and wisdom. (The fundraising segment is now and coordination begins later in the summer)
2. Mo Magic's Fillmore Youth Library: A youth community organization, Mo Magic, needs to purchase books for youth of the Fillmore for their community library initiative. Funds will directly purchase books for youth! http://momagic.org/
