2 Year Anniversary Show


  • The Block Off Biltmore (map)

It's been 2 years since I had my first show, and to celebrate I'll be hosting an event at The Block Off Biltmore on Monday, May 7th from 10pm-12am. The show is taking place during the week of action for "Black Mama's Bail Out" (May 6th-13th), so I am planning to donate funds from the show to support the cause.

"Black people are often accused and put in cells based on discriminatory and racially biased policies and monitoring. Cash bail frequently keeps Black people in cells because of their inability to pay. When mothers languish in jail because of money bail, our families and communities suffer. The costs are devastating. Women often lose their jobs, housing or even children only to be found innocent. Some women, like Sandra Bland, have lost their lives. The cost to the children Black women nurture, the partners they love, and the communities they hold is incalculable.

For the week leading up to Mother’s Day, members and supporters of Southerners On New Ground (SONG) will be locally bailing out Black mothers and caregivers who are sitting in cells because they cannot afford bail."

Asheville’s Black Mama’s Bail Out Action will be on Friday, May 11th https://www.facebook.com/events/106830970170229/
