Black History Party with a Purpose

February 25 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join MRIA’s Social Action Task Force for an afternoon of conversation and profundity related to Black History topics at 2018’s first Party with a Purpose, Sunday, February 25, 2–5 pm at 1308 Bolton Street.

In celebration of this year’s Black History Month, the Party’s donations will go to two neighborhood groups, Brown Memorial Tutoring Program and Fresh at the Avenue.

Everyone is asked to please bring 1) wine or other beverage to share, 2) a donation ($10 suggested) that will go to the featured organizations, and 3) a reading, poem, or quote from a black author. There will be food provided, and you are welcome to bring your own tasty contribution to the table.

Cultural historian, music critic and neighbor Don Palmer will kick off the event with a short talk. Then, attendees will read their selection and ask listeners to guess who the author is. Reading selections will be available for those who don’t bring one, but still want to participate.

To set the tone for the party, Don will curate a music playlist, and the featured organizations will be on hand to make short presentations.

Thanks to the SATF Planning Team for organizing this event, Michael Booth, Rob Helfenbein, and Don Palmer.
