The goal is to showcase African rich culture to Charlotte community and bring people together to celebrate as one unit and aspire the generations to come. It will also provide a positive public space to pay tribute to the African roots of people from African - American, Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Latino.

One African Fest will also serve as a platform to bring African, African- American, Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Latino to celebrate and embrace African cultural inclusion and diversity side by side as one unit. It serves as an important opportunity for organizations working within African- America, Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Latino communities to raise social awareness and highlight the work.

Blaqsbi for mental liberation

Our mission is to be the ultimate social media platform where we can speak freely, develop ideas, gain economic freedom, and organize for true equality. We huddle together to share our knowledge, believe in our greatness and inspire others towards unity.

Blaqsbi is all about promoting Unity, Love, Pride and Excellence amongst our Black and Brown (Melanated) people. We do this by celebrating our great history and our many achievements using fun challenges and incentives for posting inspiring images, music, videos and comments that celebrate our greatness.

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok and all other white owned and controlled platforms are not focused on empowering black and brown people. Join the migration to the fully black owned and operated social media platform designed specifically for us.

"The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row"

“Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison for opposing a racist system in South Africa. Anthony Ray Hinton spent 30 years on death row because a racist system still exists in America. Both emerged from their incarceration with a profound capacity to forgive. They are stunning examples of how the most horrendous cruelty can lead to the most transcendent compassion. The Sun Does Shine is both a cautionary tale for all who think that a great nation can easily forget its past and inspiring proof of the inability to condemn a man's capacity for hope, love, and joy. An amazing and heartwarming story, it restores our faith in the inherent goodness of humanity.” - Archbishop Desmond Tutu

“No one I have represented has inspired me more than Anthony Ray Hinton and I believe his compelling and unique story will similarly inspire our nation and readers all over the world.” - Bryan Stevenson, New York Times Bestselling Author, Just Mercy

“If there is ever a story that needs to be told, it is this one. Anthony Ray Hinton is extraordinary, an example to us all of the power of the human spirit to rise above complete injustice. He is using his experience as a way to turn the broken criminal justice system upside down. He is a brilliant storyteller, and his book will make people laugh, cry, and change their own lives for the better. It will also inspire people to never accept the unacceptable, like the death penalty. The Sun Does Shine will be a book that people all around the world will never forget.” - Richard Branson

"I've met Anthony Ray Hinton, and he's an extraordinary man. He stands out among exonerees (and I know hundreds of them) for his dignity and gentle soul encased in his massive frame. His story is important and compelling. Bryan Stevenson, a national treasure and central character in this story, fought tirelessly for over fifteen years and won a rare and landmark case in the United States Supreme Court. The Sun Does Shine is the gripping and inspirational story that the public has been waiting for." - Barry Scheck, Attorney, Director of the Innocence Project

“[The Sun Does Shine], collaboratively written with Hardin, is a troubling, moving, and ultimately exalting journey through the decades Hinton lived under the threat of death while an unjust system that refused to acknowledge mistakes failed him repeatedly.” - Booklist, starred review

“A memoir of spectacular grace...as moving and inspiring as memoirs get.” - Garden & Gun

“An urgent, emotional memoir from one of the longest-serving condemned death row inmates to be found innocent in America. ... A heart-wrenching yet ultimately hopeful story about truth, justice, and the need for criminal justice reform.” – Kirkus, starred review

“In this intense memoir, [Anthony Ray] Hinton recounts his three-decade nightmare: awaiting execution for crimes he didn’t commit. … Hinton’s life is one of inspiration, which he wonderfully relays here in bitingly honest prose.” - Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A testament to the power of faith and the strength of hope, The Sun Does Shine is an unforgettable and timely read that illuminates the long overdue need for criminal justice reform in America." - Bustle

"This powerful memoir is testament to a man who survived against all odds and showed how powerful the human spirit can be." - The Malestrom

"Hinton’s ability to speak about the injustices he faces with such poise and composure is his greatest gift."
- The Harvard Crimson

"A must for anyone involved in criminal justice. Suggested reading for anyone interested in learning more about death row and its horrors." - Library Journal, starred review

“The Sun Does Shine could be the most impressive book you’ll lay eyes on." - Houston Style Magazine

"Illuminating and emotionally powerful, simple and complex, and destined to become a classic in American prison literature." - The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“A shatteringly beautiful memoir…[Hinton’s] message is ultimately like a cold shower that sobers you up to the reality of injustice in the legal system, while also lifting you up as you consider the resilience of the human spirit.” - Lupita Nyong’o

Racism is at the forefront of all conversations today in this country. America was built upon racism and is a part of all systems and structures. In order to eliminate racism, white America must solve this problem. The Black community is critical in giving whites and other non-Blacks the real history and the Black experience.

The first step is to acknowledge white privilege. To do that, we invite you to join us and take the "White Privilege Test" during "Come Meet A Black Person" networking event where non-Blacks interact genuinely with a group of diverse Black people. "Come Meet A Black Person" is an open forum for human beings to start better relationships with each other across our cultural and racial differences.

"Come Meet A Black Person" is open to all races and cultures and includes guest speakers, interactive questionnaires, open conversations and an awesome group of participants. We will interact in #RacismTalkRooms and #BlackExperienceRooms as we do our part in eradicating racism in America.

Once you register for a ticket to the event here, the Zoom join information will be on the ticket. Here is the Zoom registration link - https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_movPquAvSsSVSFk
