Before you could even step inside you were greated by an assortment of colorful pieces of work gracing the sidewalk inviting you in. Next to the door was a table decked out with art bottles of sponsor Coca-Cola. The crowd filled in freely flowing around politicing with each other and picking the brains of the artists who wore tags that notified them to who they were.

There was a spread of delicious entrees that seemed endless. Catered by the illustrious Carmen's Gourmet Kitchen . Dj William Deal Jr kept heads bopping and hips moving to the grooves and he'd effortlessly dig through the crates of vinyl records.
The setting felt as though we were transported to the height of the Halem Renaissance. We were honored to have photographer and The Florida Weekly reporter Andy Spilos come not only cover the exhibit but enjoy it as well.
And yet this slice of heaven was with purpose! Everyone had not just come together to party, take selfies and drink. We had all gathered here to present MAMA with her Mother's Day Flowers.
The goal was to give back, give back and appreciation for all the work Mothers Against Murderers Association had been doing since it's formation January 2003. And it was with the biggiest of glee that Adam Ramseycould announce that we raised a wonderful about.
Leading the charge of great perfomances was our host,Treal Talk's Jessica EmpressPrestige McCready inspiring every one to "Go get it!" and that even when you have nothing at all you can still have the most. Next was a performance by Raa the Virtuoso.. who was only asked to performed last minute 5 hours prior. To which he wrote a work in progress that by the end had everyone singng along to the infectious hook. Taking it home was none other that legandary slam poet Terese Hill aka Chunky you changed your perspective while reminding you to SAY IT LOUD! I'M BLACK AND I'M PROUD!
