Vocalo.org Presents: Music & Stories Live!

August 23, 2012 @ 7:30 pm - 12:00 am

Free

For the entire summer, Vocalo & WBEZ will be discussing race—out loud, and on the air, in frank conversations, through sharing stories, and lively events. This month’s “Music & Stories” is an attempt to remove the subject of race from just being a black and white issue. We’ll connect with each other regardless of race, ethnicity or social economic status through storytelling in hopes of fostering authentic dialogue about the subject. So join in on the conversation.

Hosted by Luis & Shantell of the Vocalo Overdrive with music by special guest DJ & Host of Vocalo’s Reclaimed Soul Ayana Contreras.

Featuring Stories From:
Ytasha Womack
Sandra Jamison
& more.

*The Event will be recorded for broadcast on Vocalo Radio 89.5 FM WBEW*

There will be no open mic this time, but we’ll have recorders on hand to collect narratives and discussion after our featured storytellers share their stories.

Doors open at 6:30pm, show is from 7:30pm-9:30pm
NO COVER, This is a 21+ event
