Life is full of beautiful surprises...and when the surprises surprise you and don't go as planned, the question becomes not what what you let pain do to you, but what you do with pain. Yes... you need to cry and feel and fall to your knees and pray, but you can also CREATE. Artists and the people who support them know this. So if my work is a projection of my pain, then you'll get quite an earfull tomorrow with the release of ICONography.

I am honored to be opening the night with a few original songs.

Kesha McKey will explore the story of Sara “Saartjie” Baartman (Hottentot Venus) with focus on exhibition of the African American female body image and the establishment of European ideas of black female sexuality. As a result of the scientific and philosophical assumptions, black women became a representation of savage sexuality, degradation, and racial inferiority with the objectification of the black female body still resonating throughout present pop and hip hop culture. Using historical photos, text, and explorative movement processes, I want to create strong choreographic images that will investigate as well as challenge, and work in contrast to these stereotypical body images.

Telluride, CO 81435
Price: Check the website

No, they are not the colorful candy produced by Mars, Inc, but it wouldn’t be a far off claim to say the music made by The M&Ms is from another planet. Lead by famed vocalist/guitarist Papa Mali of the 7 Walkers, and properly anchored by the Galactic rhythm section of Stanton Moore and Rob Mercurio, it is the noticeable presence of Medeski, Martin & Wood member John Medeski on keys that completes this rare New Orleans-inspired supergroup. Able to move with ease between swampy soul, space jazz, and rocking blues, the quartet of sonic heavy hitters are a New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival late night staple, and now recent Jam Cruise veterans that don’t otherwise play together very often. The band that started as an experiment in combining last names with the same first letter has gelled into a unique act with recorded material and an affinity for crushing their limited live performances that they say “melts in your mind.”

Learn Till Ya Die - Noon-4pm
3536 Toulouse Street
New Orleans, LA
USA
NOLA Til Ya Die, the Literacy Alliance of Greater New Orleans, and One Book One New Orleans, a project of the Young Leadership Council (YLC), are teaming up to address one of the biggest--but least discussed--challenges to adult learners in our community: transportation. Many of the approximately 3000 students attending adult literacy centers in Orleans Parish rely on bicycles as their only means of transportation, yet the learning centers lack secure bike racks, which has led to bike thefts on more than one occasion. We as a community can help.

On April 18th, 2015, our three organizations will hold an event titled, "Learn Til Ya Die," dedicated to celebrating lifelong learning in New Orleans. NOLA Til Ya Die...which will host the event at its new headquarters at 3536 Toulouse St, has generously agreed to donate $5 from every sale of $25 or more toward putting bike racks outside adult learning centers! In addition to merchandise sales, the Learn Til Ya Die fundraiser will feature food, beverages, entertainment, and original artwork and essays from adult learners throughout Orleans Parish. Details about the event are still unfolding, but we can tell you this much--every dollar you spend will make a difference. Please mark your calendars and save the date!

After this event, Where Ya Rack, also a project of the Young Leadership Council, will work with us to install the bike racks.

Resurrect & Reclaim will be held on Saturday April 4th from 6:30-9pm at Cafe Istanbul (2372 St Claude Ave, New Orleans, LA 70117), will be an interactive performance by Taina Asili y la Banda Rebelde and Monica McIntyre. This event will include: a community altar, visual/writing/movement creation stations, curated by the Nola Wildseeds Collective. The audience will be invited to participate in the creative process of the event as well, including an improvisational song collaboration. 

Taina Asili and Monica McIntyre met in Philadelphia, PA over 10 years ago, and both artists have very distinctive musical styles. Monica McIntyre uses their voice and cello to seamlessly blend blues, soul, classical, jazz, reggae and Middle Eastern sounds into their own unique genre. Taina Asili joins with her 6-piece band, la Banda Rebelde to bring a high-energy fusion of Afro-Latin, reggae and rock sounds. Both artists recognized each other’s talent years ago and began curating several events together. Since leaving Philadelphia, Monica and Taina, have both toured nationally and internationally, regularly performing with renowned artists at well-known venues and festivals. In addition to releasing several albums, they have received many awards and acknowledgments for their work.

Wildseeds is a collective of women of color that uses speculative fiction as a resource for social change. Our work, steeped in Black feminist traditions of survival and healing, engages Octavia Butler and other speculative/sci-fi and fantastical authors. The group was founded in New Orleans in 2013 by Desiree Evans and Soraya Jean-Louis McElroy in response to Adrienne Maree Brown's call to use Octavia Butler's work as a tool to build emergent strategy.

Price: Free

The Dialogue on Race community summit will present an open and cordial environment that will enable us to raise and discuss area racial concerns. Led by an experienced facilitator, we will engage these concerns and work toward developing solutions. The main objective of the summit is to develop an approach to guide us in resolving some of these racial problems.

Racial problems persist in Montgomery County. While many African Americans in our community are aware of these issues, they are not often discussed in the wider community. To bring these problems to light and begin to address them from many points of view, several Montgomery County organizations are collaborating to host this dialogue.
This coming January, during the next celebration of the life and work of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, we believe gathering to sit together and work on making Montgomery County more of the "Beloved Community" Dr. King often spoke about, will be a wonderful way to follow his example and honor his memory.
Lunch and beverages will be served.
Please RSVP to Wornie Reed via e-mail at: wornie@vt.edu.

This show brings the storytelling of the three songwriters in a round robin which offers spontaneous collaboration and a way to weave three very distinct voices together with the common thread of love, spirituality and community.
