South Florida People of Color Diversity of the African Diaspora

February 19, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm

South Florida People of Color Diversity of the African Diaspora

Join the South Florida People of Color (SFPoC) and Brickell City Centre for their second annual Diversity of the African Diaspora.

Throughout our history, music was used as a way for Black people to be resilient and resist the oppression they were facing. From early spirituals born out of the unconscionable hardships of slavery, to the creation of folk and gospel, to the evolution of rhythm and blues and jazz, to the ascendance of rock & roll, rap, and hip-hop — Black music has shaped our society, entertained and inspired us, and helped write and tell the story of our Nation. 

“We will take a walk down Black Music memory lane and showcase a varied genre of African rooted music such as R&B, Jazz, Funk, Hip-Hop, The Blues and more. We invite you to join us and reflect on Black music and poetry as an important form of resistance and joy that speaks across cultural boundaries, helps bridge divides, and empowers communities,” says Roni Bennett South Florida People of Color Executive Director.

 Diversity of the African Diaspora will feature South Florida’s musical talents like Lavie, DJ Tillery James hosted by poet Mo Beasley.
