Just finished the MAMA SAID KNOCK YOU OUT 2! flyer for the Mamas of Color Rising organization. A collective of working class and poor mothers of color based in and around Austin, TX. Mamas of Color Rising focuses on issues like access to food, housing, education and safety in the community. This special benefit is being put together to help raise funds, and raise awareness. An all-female MC showcase with performers like Invincible, Las Krudas, Lah Tere, and many more will be reppin’ including some live art by yours truly:) Looking forward to this trip, and reconnecting with my Austin hommies.
