Habaru gani? Ujamaa!
I only have so many dollars to give (‘n honestly I jus been goin’ to the movies ‘cuz ain’t nobody got time for mediocre theater), but these painters, musicians, writers, producers (who-not by coincidence-are mostly POC) can take my money any day.
Our community is vast. I'm humbled by you all.
If you don’t kno these artists, now you kno
Give them all your $
