Event description

Description

The “AfroRights Open Mic” Happy Hour-Mixer is a biweekly convening dedicated to promoting empowerment, consciousness, self-care, and unity among members of the African diaspora via Pan-Africanist and Black nationalist philosophies. AfroRights Open Mics ultimately seek to create a space to convene individuals interested in cultural, social, economic, and political equity and equality for all African descendants, otherwise known as “Black” people. The purpose of the series of convenings is to identify and implement mutually beneficial solutions that are universal or community-based in scope regarding social, political, and economic policies and conditions that effect African descendants within America and internationally.

AfroRights Open Mics seek to promote #BlackEqualism and facilitate the development of bonds, paradigms, campaigns, entities and institutions, and social, economic, and political systems that feature, serve, develop, and incorporate ALL members of the African diaspora regardless of educational background, income level, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, ethnicity, residence, geographic location, and political and religious affiliations, otherwise known as social, political, or economic status.

Put simply, the AfroRights Open Mic Happy Hour-Mixer seeks to create an experience of “church in the club” meets the "Black TED Talks" as spirituality, popular culture, politics, economics, and social issues are forged into an authentic, unique, and universal experience. The organizers of the AfroRights Open Mic Happy Hour are interested in attracting ALL individuals interested in the cultural, economic, social, and political development of African descendants, and seek to showcase individuals including but not limited to: artists, designers, writers, intellectuals, entrepreneurs, investors, philanthropists, performers, musicians, poets, community organizers, businessmen and women, scientists, engineers, technologists, teachers, and anyone interested in collective actions to change the status quo.
