Event description

Description

Calling all Power Movers to our monthly artful networking event that features: a live performance, an art auction, an atmosphere of networking and fellowship, as we acknowledge notable people of color that live work and play in Prince George’s County or the DC Metropolitan area. We have our finger on the pulse of the progressive professional.

We give respect and honor to the people paving the way for the region, celebrating those who have shown outstanding impact or influence. The PG Power Mover will be honored during the event and speak to the audience about their past, present and future power moves.

PGAAMCC's May scholar is Morgan Davis, the founder + CEO of a Maryland based company called Distinctly Creative -- which focuses on helping black creative entrepreneurs succeed personally and professionally through the use of events, a directory, the Black Creatives Matter apparel, online business resources, and a creative coworking + makerspace in Mount Rainier, MD.
Distinctly Creative is committed to a vision of promoting and advocating for black creative entrepreneurs, and being the go-to platform for those looking to broaden their skill sets, grow their business, network with other like-minded individuals, and connect their business with the overall community.

A Special Performance by Tamara Jade!

Tamara Jade is an alumna of Oberlin College and Conservatory of Music where she received a BA in Sociology and a BMus in Vocal Performance. Whether she is singing an operatic aria or jazz standard, Tamara’s voice is known for its gorgeous timbre, impeccable control and extensive range. A classically trained vocalist and self-taught pianist from Prince George’s County, MD, she fuses her own artistic quality, skill, and originality to continuously shape a unique sound of her own.

She has shared the stage with Daryl Coley, Yolanda Adams, Kim Burrell, Jennifer Holiday, the Zac Brown Band, Ledisi, Loretta Divine, Sam Moore, Billy Gibbons, Joe Don Rooney and more. Tamara's 2016 New York debut was in the world premier of The Classical Theater of Harlem’s “The First Noel” at the historic Apollo Theater. She went on to join the McDonald's Faces in Black History Tour in February 2017. In summer 2017, Tamara was a principle singer in New York Musical Festival's premier presentation of Thompson and Webb's "Ilathi." Tamara was a featured soloist in Theater of War's 5-week run of "Antigone in Ferguson" at Harlem Stage, for which she was featured in the New York Times. During the run, Tamara also joined the cast of the reading for Titus Burgess' "The Preacher's Wife," set to be a fully-staged production in 2019. Tamara made her return to the historic Apollo Theater in April 2019 as a featured ensemble singer in Wildflower, written by Tony Award winner, Jason Michael Webb and Lelund Thompson and produced by National Black Theater.
