BAM Dance Africa Festival - Bazaar

    Every year BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) in Fort Greene, Brooklyn celebrates African Culture and heritage during memorial day weekend. The biggest event is always the street festival, hosting hundreds of vendors (majority Black owned businesses) selling all kinds of handmade clothes and jewelry, among so much more. This time around I went on the first day, Saturday, and I purchased a beautiful long skirt which would the complete my outfit for the next day when I attended with my sister. Between both of those visits I bought the skirt, a necklace, waist beads, two bracelets, and earrings. All a steal and seemingly "one of a kind". For the pst few years I've noticed it is always blazing hot during this weekend but this time around it was rather chilly. However, the cool weather did not stop the crowd, the music, or the fly outfits. Here are some photos I captured :

BLCK FOLK at The Nuyo

    BLCK FOLK is a spoken word poetry collective and movement featuring several Black poets representing both the east and west coast. Founded by poets Jasmine Mans and Rudy Francisco after their tour by the same name last year. Last night was their second show here in New York City, as a collective,  at the legendary Nuyorican Poets CafĂ© on the Lower East Side.

   Jasmine hosted, Rudy headlined and the night also featured performances from BLCK FOLK artists, Savon Bartley, Chris Lilley, and Avery Sawyer. All backed by the house band for the evening, OJ in the Yams. The words, the music, the stories, and free popcorn ! This event was not one to miss, but if you did it is okay, they will be doing tons of shows, very soon and more info can be found on their website: blckfolk.com/
