Event alert: Celebrate great black women of Kentucky tonight at the Clifton Center

It’s way past my bedtime, but I wanted to get something up quick about an event from Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, a social justice organization that’s doing good work for folks in the state.

Tonight is the third annual We Are Kentuckians: Celebrating Our Common Heritage, a bash that brings together art, music and food in celebration of the people of the Commonwealth. This year’s gathering specifically focuses on lifting up black women in Kentucky (*clears throat* YAAAAAAS).

Here’s a blurb from Kentuckians for the Commonwealth:

We Are Kentuckians honors Black women in Kentucky through music, dance, spoken word, and storytelling. The evening lineup includes: musicians Committed, Cynthia Fletcher, and DJ Alli; dancers Dionne Griffiths and Cynthia Brown; poets Hannah Drake and Robin Garner; and storytellers Kristen Williams, Taylor Little, and Andrea Massey.

This event is open to the public with a suggested donation of $10 to $20, which includes delicious food from Dasha Barbour’s Southern Bistro and Louisville Vegan Kitchen. There will be a cash bar and silent auction.

There’s still time to buy tickets to the event here. You can also learn more about Kentuckians for the Commonwealth here.
