Local artists, poets, and musicians gathered at the Regional Arts Commission to bring domestic abuse into the forefront during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. All seats were taken, leaving standing room only for a sell-out crowd of 150. All performances evoked messages of rising above violence; each piece honored survivors in its own way. Attendees were provided with information on the warning signs of abuse, stages of leaving a harmful relationship, and myths about domestic violence. Event organizer and survivor, Torri Brown, recruited local talent — David A.N Jackson “D’Poet,” Kels Da Poet, Maria Elena, Maurice Minor “Invisible Man,” Bellawords, El Thought, Rita Reinhardt, Meka, Jenny David, Sister Taraji, Knowledge, and Chadsity “2B” Adams — to perform without compensation. This event was held in partnership with Lydia’s House with support from the National Council for Jewish Women.
