Oakland-based API and Black artists and community organizations unite for an afternoon of performance and dialogue centering our shared history, challenges, and vision for what safety look like in all communities. The event will open with drumming and a land acknowledgment by Kanyon Sayers-Roods, a member of the Costanoan Ohlone and Chumash people. Featured artists include Ayodele Nzinga, City of Oakland 2021 Poet Laureate and founding Producing Director of Lower Bottom Playaz, Inc., and Michelle Mush Lee, Principal and Founder of Whole Story Group. More guests to be confirmed.

This event will be held in-person in OACC’s Auditorium. Depending on the development of environmental factors (namely COVID-19), this event may pivot to a virtual format. RSVP to receive the latest updates.

The event is presented in partnership with the Black Arts Movement District Community Development Corporation as part of BAMBDFEST 2021. Donations are appreciated and no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
