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.
