Headliners include Tate Kobang, Deetranada, Davon Fleming, and George Lovett. The two – part concert series will be held 8 – 10 p.m., May 23 and May 30. This concert series will be a virtual celebration of Baltimore’s Black Arts and creative community.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis many local Black Baltimore creatives have lost thousands of dollars in canceled gigs. In addition to teaming up with BOPA and BCAN to co-organize the Baltimore Artist Emergency Relief Fund, the Black Arts District also decided to host online programming in order to activate artists during this time and provide a fee for service to supplement lost revenue. The Black Arts District believes that in times of darkness the artist becomes essential. While documenting the times, they also help to restore hope.
The event will be hosted by Lady Brion, executive director of The Pennsylvania Avenue Black Arts and Entertainment District. Other featured artists include: Mike Evenn, Meccamorphosis, Black Chakra, April Sampe, Icon Tha God, Eze Jackson, Black Assetts, J Pope, Akilah Divine, Dapper Dan Midas, Katyrah Love, and Lita Lichey.
