Just a quick note to direct a small bit of your attention (no one asked me to do this).
The parent organization is Baltimore Black Dance Collective – leadership of Camille Weanquoi, Kutia Jawara, and Ronderrick Mitchell. There’s been no fundraising activity for three moths, and the event is just three weeks away. As of now, just $240 of their $2600 goal raised. $2600 is a modest goal, and this is a sincere effort to do something meaningful in challenging times.
I know it’s still pandemic crazy time, but if you’ve got reach to attract some attention (and, hopefully, a few dollars) to the effort, please do.
Fundraiser is here.
And if you can attend (safely!), I know you know the value of an attentive audience….
[ UPDATE 2021.09.22]
Apparently there is some technical trouble with GoFundMe (of course, because I asked people to go there… of course. Of course.).
Anyway, the “donate” button at GoFundMe doesn’t work right now, but you can make a contribution directly to the Baltimore Black Dance Collective via PayPal or credit/debit card here.
I do suggest you follow-up any Black Choreographer’s Festival donations with an email and make sure they know your intention.
Thanks again, and sorry for the confusion.
Also, I forgot to do this in the original request…. and now I’m officially too late (east coast time), but… Do you remember? Demi Adejuyigbe does his thing and if you need that original dazzling late 70’s video, that’s here.
