BLACK AUGUST People’s Market & Hip Hop Showcase
- This event has passed.
August 13 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
In honor of the struggles for black liberation and the fight to free all political prisoners being held captive in US prisons, we honor Black August and the legacy of George Jackson.
Join us for a special TPF’s vendor’s market and Hip Hop showcase co-organized with LEGENDARY CYPHERS and Malcolm X Grassroots Movement. This event will be a fundraiser for Sundiata Acoli who is now home after 49 years in prison, and dealing with health issues. Proceedings will go to support Sundiata’s care.
Our Black August hip hop showcase is co-hosted by @legendarycyphers360, a group which has held open cyphers at Union Square Park every Friday since 2013. Headlining our Black August hip hop showcase, we have @rshonthebeat!
