The Little Black Pearl hosted an event called Celebrating Options Gala on August 13th at the gallery. The purpose was to officially launch their new charter school. I sat with them earlier in the week and got details on the school and I was very impressed by what the staff is doing. The event was attended by several hundred “friends” and it was a huge success. The artists for the night were Nona Hendryx, Terri Lyne Carrington, Lizz Wright and Esperanza Spaulding. Also in the mix was local fav Frank McComb on keyboard. Each one of these folks did an outstanding job. I could say more but as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
