CALLING ALL PEACEFUL WARRIORS - Come Together Against Hate

On Friday, August 25th at 6pm, we welcome our community of Peaceful Warriors to come together in honor of unity, togetherness, and love and against racism, divisiveness, and hatred.

In light of the horrific displays of racism and hatred in Charlottesville, BBCC will holding space for an open community conversation to address responses, reactions, feelings, emotions, and plans of action.

Following our discussion, we will hold a workshop where we use the power of movement to work together towards collective healing.

Mestre Amen will lead an Afro-Brazilian Dance workshop following the conversation where we can collectively release emotions and energies built up during our discussion.

This is an OPEN and FREE public event. Any donations collected will be given in support to an organization of our choosing (to be announced this week) to directly aid in efforts righting racism and white supremacy.

** It is our continued responsibility to stand together as a community of united Peaceful Warriors, not just in light of recent displays of hatred, but as an ongoing force against CENTURIES of oppression and divisiveness.***

Our hearts are with the victims of Charlottesville.

BBCC IS LOVE. BBCC IS A SAFE SPACE. BBCC IS UNITY.
#endwhitesupremicy #endracism #endhate #bbcc #movementofliberation #blacklivesmatter #diversity #community #diversityinmotion

Our resistance to racism, sexism, and xenophobia is manifest in the continued nurturing of our culturally diverse, inclusive, and loving community.

Here is a little about one of Mestre Amen's favorite percussive instrument
🔹🔺🔹🔻🔹🔺🔹🔻🔹🔺🔹
The Timbau is a membranophone instrument derived from the Caxambu drum. Slightly conical and of varying sizes, it is usually light in weight and made of lacquered wood or metal with a tunable nylon head. The drum is most often found in Bahia, originating in Salvador, Bahia, and is used mainly to play Axé and Samba-reggae. They are played in a similar manner to the Atabaque, another hand drum a version of which had been brought to Brazil in slavery and is used in Candomblé rituals. In the 1980s, a music/social movement was organized to bring the Timbal to popular music.

We have raised 66% of our goal....
WE ONLY NEED $5,595 TO REACH OUR GOAL OF $16,500!!!!
We received 2 donations towards this campaign outside the GoFundMe platform which we are adding to the raised total. One was a $1000 matching grant that we were able to match thanks to you all, and another was a $3000 donation from a very special individual. The floors are ready to be installed so we can open on time. We need to pay them on MONDAY, JULY 11. We need your help to get the remaining $5,595.
On the GoFundMe platform, the total we need to reach is $12,500
(we were unable to adjust the amount to reflect the outside donations).
This is the LAST BIG PUSH!!!!!
Thank you, Mestre Amen & Nayla Santo

**UPDATE**
We were planning to do this trip before the ZIKA breakout and thought it would be wise to cancel it. We are not sure yet what to do. The purpose of this post was to check if people/families are still interested in spite of the virus. I am doing some research and would love your findings as well. This trip is VERY open to families. If there really is an interest, I will gather more information as far as pricing and dates ASAP.
