I almost forgot to post last week’s VLOG! My goal is to give you a new video every week. I love sharing parts of my life with you and living in Nashville as well. You know, because Nashville is POPPING right now. Anyway, this week’s VLOG documents me going to the Urban Soul Cafe All-White Worship Experience and attending the Jefferson Street Art Crawl.
Every month Carlos Hale, director of Urban Soul Cafe, curates a gospel concert that includes local and nationally known artists. Last month’s All White Worship Experience included Nate Bean & 4Given, Lisa McClendon, and Maranda Curtis. The concert was a great experience. I love gospel music! I hadn’t heard Nate Bean nor Maranda Curtis before; they did not disappoint. Each artist has a new project available, so make sure to support!
The next day, I went to the Jefferson Street Art Crawl. JSAC is an effort to retain the historical presence of Jefferson Street while allowing people to visit businesses hosting artists. The art crawl occurs on the fourth Saturday of each month. Businesses along this historic street offer sales promotions, music installations, and even more art. It’s an amazing way to visit the area and see what Nashville’s historically black community.
During the month of August, The Lab Nashville was a host during the JSAC. The new co-working space has amazing pricing for entrepreneurs looking for a space to host meetings and events. In addition, Xavier Payne debuted his Don’t Tread on Me exhibition that examines the social, cultural, and economic climate within the Black American community in Nashville. I was so excited to see these works, in person, as I’ve been following XPAYNE on social media for years.
So, I know you’ll enjoy this week’s vlog. Leave comments and tell a friend! See you next week with another video!
