To do: the Soulflower Group Speakeasy series
Corporate sponsorship is fading fast, people (we are the 99). There is a new means to the end (whatever that end may be) and it's coming from the community. It's called crowd-sourcing and it's totally grass roots and when done right it can be seriously effective.
The Soulflower Group is a consortium of artist and organizers behind all sorts of awesome events, including Soulful Sundays at Veni Vidi Vici. In August, the group brought in Grammy®-nominated artist Bilal. Now, they want to create a series of performance events (five events in six months), that would kick off with singer/poet Sunni Patterson. You can help by contributing (monetarily) to the cause.
At a time when people are protesting against the corporate machine, it's good to remind ourselves that we can speak with our dollars and make positive things happen.
