8th Avenue Open Streets: Word on the Block
November 6, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
A Live Event where the Word, the Knowledge and the Rhyme light up our Black history literally in the middle of a closed-off 8th Avenue on a 24ft x 20ft stage in Hungtington. Be in the audience to witness this premiere event where an element of history is siphoned through a podcast conversation (the Biz), lecture (5 Black scholars) and then Hip-hop MCs (6 Rappers) spit original rhymes on the same topic. Think Podcast meets Ted Talk meets Coachella!
This show, at this time, and in this location is our small attempt to honor our African American history alongside those living Black elders that have been keepers of our truth, our history. Brought to you by All Here Together productions, Positive People Association, and WV Humanities Council.
