Friday, September 2, 2016 at Project 23

There are virtually no places/clubs/bars/spaces in Washtenaw County at which people of color feel welcomed and encouraged to perform. Flower*Child, Ashanti Africana, and Tati are part of a group of artist-activists of color who’ve been hosting a portable event called Pass the Vibes, which seeks to redress this lack of collective gathering and performance space.

Now, Keep Ypsi Black is adding its support to this burgeoning movement by launching FRDM HALL.

Join us this Friday evening for an Open Mic at which all people of color are invited to perform, followed by a screening of Spike Lee’s 1989 film Do the Right Thing.


Friday, September 9: National Prisoners Strike Day!

Show your support for incarcerated people by taking part in this Detroit demonstration. There is also an action planned for Lansing.
