MESSAGE FROM MOMMA’S HIP-HOP KITCHEN:
“Hate. It has caused a lot of problems in this world but has not solved one yet.” – Maya Angelou
Setting the intention for Momma’s Hip-Hop Kitchen for the past 8 years has been an intense experience. The plethora of issues that impact women, specifically women of color and their families, is quite overwhelming.
Last year we decided that Enough Is Enough and made a Spiritual Call to these actions:
–RISE and awaken the Spirit of women and girls all over the world.
–HEAL the mind, body and spirit of people of color from the impact of oppression.
–BECOME that which we already are, fearless, courageous and powerful!
As we get closer to reaching a decade of using the art of Hip-Hop as a tool for awareness, self expression and healing, we deeply feel that it is our responsibility to bring the idea of Universal Love to the stage. We ALL need Love!
Universal Love is an expression of total harmony. Everything is in harmony with everything else. Nothing is excluded. Your will is in harmony with your compassion. Your compassion is in harmony with your joy. Your joy is in harmony with your anger. Your anger is in harmony with your body. Your body is in harmony with your ego. Your ego is in harmony with other people. There is no conflict anywhere. Everything fits and functions as a togetherness, as a oneness. That oneness is you.
Collectively, we will explore the idea of Universal Love through our powerful sisters performances. Our hope is to sow a seed of this type of love into our community. We will be together for a total of 2 1/2 hours shedding positive vibrations of love and light to our hood and to the world. Please join us!
This event is FREE and open to all ages.
