A Young Black Man Going Ego Trippin’

Our visionary Tonya Cross is the organizer of local community conversation “Peace Circle” that launched in July 2015.  The Peace Circle creates a safe space for open and honest dialogue about social issues that impact the local community. The conversations are held the first Tuesday of every month at Mean Mug Coffee Company, 1024 S. Fulton Street, Salisbury NC.

Peace Circle hosted their first parent/child workshop sessions “What’s Your Role In The Village?” in September 2015 which addressed how systemic racism, discrimination, and stereotypes impacts the local community. A Young Black Man Going Ego Trippin’ photo series was inspiration for artwork and poetry created by local youth who attended the workshops. Mrs. Carla Marlin Smith a parent engagement specialist at Parent University of Chapel Hill – Carrboro City Schools was the workshop facilitator. Ms. Anneca Raines of Uhkneeka Rainz Photography is the photographer of the photo series.

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.**
