Do you know excellent HBCU Alumni business owners?
We’ve seen first hand, the power of uniting and approaching change through our economic power.
This holiday season, Alumni Roundup is supporting alumni-owned businesses, with the hope of creating more opportunities for our dollars to circulate in our community.
Introducing Historically Black Friday Once a week we’re sending our membership of thousands of alumni a summary of businesses owned by members of our community.
We’ve created an opportunity for those excellent service providers and vendors among us to reach a receptive audience of supportive alumni.
Direct to Alumni.
We hope that the Doctors, Lawyers, Dentists, Restauranteurs, and vendors among us will find this more than helpful. And we hope our membership finds the opportunity to fulfill more of their holiday shopping from within our ranks.
THE DC JAZZ FESTIVAL & ATLAS PEFORMING ARTS CENTER PRESENT…
IN JAZZ WE TRUST: Music in Motion
Washington, DC – Acclaimed choreographer, Princess Mhoon, presents IN JAZZ WE TRUST: Music in Motion, an evening of dance works that look at the rich tradition of jazz music. Featuring legendary compositions of some the greats, this concert will take you on a visceral journey of timeless beauty of an era past.
With work commissioned by the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Princess Mhoon has been called a visionary of her generation. “Known for her chameleon-like quality, Mhoon’s movement seamlessly connects modern, ballet, hip-hop, and African dance styles, and has been seen nationally and internationally. She is a 2015 Helen Hayes nominee for Best Choreographer in a Musical.
In the wake of the protests against police brutality and the killing of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis released a video meant to deter people who used the outcry as an opportunity to destroy property. The passion he brought to his Hall of Fame football career is there, but his rambling, out-of-touch commentary is missing almost every important historical aspect regarding why the protests and property destruction happened in the first place.
In 1991, Howard University rested squarely in the hood.
Now, the university hasn’t MOVED, but think of the hood as a sort of tide that rises and encompasses areas, and other times recedes, leaving traces like flopping fish on the ground after a tidal wave. We we’re under water.
I don’t know whether Darren Wilson is a racist. Or a White supremacist. It doesn’t matter. The fact that he will never face a trial by jury for killing Michael Brown is a victory for White supremacy all the same.
