Sayin' It Loud!: 2006 Black L.U.V. Fest

In commemoration of 2007 Black History Month and during my ritual February hibernation I've uploaded more never before seen 2006 Black L.U.V. Festival photos.

In 1997, The Black L.U.V. (love, unity & vision) Festival was established by artists in the historic U street community who continue to be dedicated to social change.

Though in years past this FREE one-day multi-cultural outdoor event took place at Meridian Hill in Malcolm X. Park the 2006 Black L.U.V. Festival was held in the H. Carl Moultrie Courthouse Plaza at 4th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue in northwest Washington DC.

Why Sundays? The Black L.U.V. Festival embraces the institution of Sunday being a day for family. Which is when many families participate in church and religious activities.

Though still under construction, if clicked, the above photo of Green Tea links to my 2006 Black L.U.V. Festival photoset.

In commemoration of Black History Month 2007 I am now launching the new ongoing historiographic project BLACK PERFORMANCE ARTISTS - SAYIN' IT LOUD!
