REMEMBER "LANDMARK" DECISION

WHAT:
Finding Our Folk and The Fyre Youth Squad throw a community concert and film screening a year to the day of the "landmark" decision to clear-cut public housing. D20 Blowout Consciousness celebrates the resilience of the people and culture of New Orleans featuring the creative spirit of local youth. Amid photographs by Through The Youth Lens, young spoken word artists will "bless the mic" while, the next generation of brass, The Big 7 & The Trendsetters, blow it out! The evening's program will frame the youth with two local award-winners: Cut Off: It's Not About The Buildings. It's About The People. (Documentary, 45 min.) and a performance by the legendary Hot 8 Brass Band. In New Orleans fashion, there will be good food & plenty of discussion free and open to the people!
