"Change is like giving birth..when you really want it...you will delivery that baby"
And we delivered that Baby!
Huge thank you to our host D. Ellis (Mr. Entertainment) he is more than a comedian he is a natural master of ceremonies! We want to express our love and appreciation to Sunni Patterson for coming out and blessing our city with her humble yet powerful words and presence. She is a poet activist and verbal healer. Sunni surprised the DFW local performers with an impromptu jam session that some guests stated, "felt like church service!"
The night was an even balance of poetry, hip hop, and soul. Acts included phenomenal performances by Verb Kulture, Dallas Slam Poets (Candy and Javon), songstress Jurni Rayne, hip hop artist Eb Rebel, live music by the Skinny Cooks Band and KKMG artists Peepsigns and Ms Hip Hop aka Poor Rich Woman.
Free The Streets first major fundraiser was able to raise funds for the quarter. The turn out of support was more than a victory for this young non profit. On the following morning, Sunni and Free The Streets came together on a fundraising brunch to also help raise funds to assist South Dallas' local resource center, Pan African Connection.
This event was also a great success.
Once again Free The Streets and its partners are very grateful for the support from the Dallas/ Ft.Worth community and look forward to (re)building and uplifting young adults in under privileged areas via self awareness and empowerment!
