Dunbar Center Commemorative Event

IMG_4373

Join Renaissance Arts Program (RAP) as we commemorate the Dunbar Center. RAP is a grassroots collective initiative recently started by local artists and community organizers. Our goal is to expose local African American youth to their culture and heritage through the arts.

We felt that it was important that someone respond to the burning of Dunbar Center. We have accepted this task and have planned an event for Black History Month. The event is Saturday February 21st from 12noon-3pm at Southern City Tabernacle AME Zion Church, 940 South Long Street, East Spencer, NC. The purpose of this event is two fold. 1) Commemorate historical significance of Dunbar Center 2) Introduce RAP’s vision to community.

Vendors interested in being a part of this event should contact Tonya Cross at cross.tonya@gmail.com. **There is NO VENDING FEE; we ask that vendors donate 10% of sales to arts program.**

December: AIDS Awareness Month

The Vine Events:

Update: Theme for 2014 – “Focus, Partner, Achieve: An AIDS-Free Generation”

Originally posted on The Vine Events:

world aids day 2012_logo2AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) has become a prominent health issue not only in the United States but around the globe. Finding a cure would be ideal, however the best way to combat AIDS is to arm people with knowledge about the disease. To spread awareness about AIDS, the month of December has been dedicated to educating people on the disease, how to prevent it, and how to live with it.

AIDS is caused by HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) which is a virus that attacks the immune system by destroying cells that help you to fight off diseases.

Moving Forward: We-The-People Coalition

Legacy MonthOur very own, Tonya Cross, was a part of a panel discussion hosted by We-The-People Coalition on Tuesday, November 25th at Love Christian Center, East Spencer, NC. The event was in response to the Ferguson decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for the murder of Michael Brown. It was an assembly of community citizens, activists, and organizations. The purpose was to provide a forum to openly express feelings, concerns, and resolutions relating to Ferguson and our local African American community.

The discussion moderator was Scott Teamer, president of the Salisbury-Rowan NAACP Branch. Other panel speakers were Rev. Carrie Bolton, Rev. Anthony Smith, Kenneth Fox Muhammad, Kenny Hardin, and Alex Clark. Topics discussed included the need for collective action, economic development, community leadership, knowledge of self, and community collaboration.

Birthed from the meeting was a collective action to create a database of community organizations and local businesses. The Vine Events has accepted the task of collecting the data and we need YOUR HELP. Visit We-The-People Database to submit information about your community organizations and/or businesses to include in the database.
