Little Black Pearl Unplugged

Monica Haslip and the staff of Little Black Pearl hosted the first “unplugged” event on 12/16/11. ¬†What a great event it was, featuring Nona Hendryx, Terri Lyne Carrington, Dianne Reeves, and Tia Fuller (that lady with the sax). Also featured were a group of students from the brand new ¬†Options Charter School. Who else was there? Non other than the legendary activist and humanitarian Angela Davis. The evening was replete with song, poetry, social commentary and a word of encouragement. The little Black Pearl is definitely “doing good for the neighborhood”, very well done.

More on this event will be coming, so check back.
