A local chapter of Black Lives Matter, extended an open invitation to the community for a collaborative potluck that centers around food that nourishes the mind, body and soul. The revolution needs to be fed.
Many folks attending the community potluck at Lacrone Park, located in the heart of the northside of Kalamazoo, where most of the residents are african american or people of color.
The backyard barbeque feel and atmosphere that is very much attuned to black culture and experience, is what BLM as brought to Lacrone Park.
As well as food and drinks to share, the group also requesting school supplies to pass out the attending children and opportunities for individuals to learn about outreach opportunities in the community.
No one was turned away for not bringing a dish. All were welcome eat, share and learn.
