Breaking Atoms: A Conversation with DDm About Being Black, Gay and an MC

DDM_SeeingSounds_Cover.jpg

What does it mean to love music that doesn’t always affirm the full you? What does it mean to love hip hop so much that, despite all of the things that say you shouldn’t, you decide to be an out Black gay rapper? During this event Black gay photographer and artist manager Johnnie Ray Kornegay III will sit down for a one on one discussion with Baltimore MC DDm. DDm’s style is rooted in classic battle rap. Johnnie will explore DDm’s journey as a rapper by discussing his history, mentors, inspirations and how he’s managed to navigate the hip hop industry as an out Black gay man. The highs, lows and everything in between. Yes, we will talk about his incredibly popular Secretary of Shade a bit.

Breaking Atoms: A Conversation With DDm About Being Black, Gay and an MC will be an intimate discussion that dives deep into what it means to be part of the LGBTQ community and in the business of hip hop.

You'll be able to enjoy a light brunch including mimosas and music provided by DJ Sir Daniel.

The Ties That Bind: Black MSM, Crystal Meth & Family

TCNP_Facebook_SharedImage_TiesThatBind_1200x630_Ver2_Update.png

How do harm reduction techniques apply when it’s our family and friends who’re impacted by crystal meth? This webinar will strip back our attitudes about harm reduction to discuss how we care for our loved ones who’re using crystal meth. We’ll discuss cultural implications, where we sometimes get it wrong, and tips for how to get it right.

Presented by Counter Narrative Project in collaboration with BEAM and Harm Reduction Coalition

Opening Reception: Dusty Rose by Patrick Di Rito

The Bakery Atlanta is pleased to present Dusty Rose: A Queer Color Series, Atlanta-based artist Patrick Di Rito's first solo exhibition accompanied by a book release. A project three years in the making, the exhibition and book explore themes of queerness, depression, suicidal ideation, isolation, and loneliness. Using color swatches as a jumping off point, Dusty Rose provides the viewer with a glimpse into the artist’s existential crisis, gender identity, and sexual identity. Each portrait, with its monochromatic outfit, background, and prop, constructs an alternate world for the photographed subject, the artist.

Rising Sage Theatre Presents Rich Rubin's "Class Act"

Rising Sage Theatre Presents Rich Rubin's "Class Act"

  • Fulton County West End Performing Arts Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Directed by Jarrod Walker. Kai, a young African-American woman, is a conscientious student at a prestigious East Coast university. When Rebecca, her sociology professor, seeks a volunteer to portray a living-on-the-edge prostitute as part of an in-class, role-play exercise, Kai raises her hand, believing that she’s helping to “give voice” to a marginalized member of society. Kai’s performance in that role proves to be extraordinarily realistic – so realistic, in fact that unintended consequences soon result for Kai and Rebecca both.
