Overview

The Maryland Institute College of Art invites you to help us kick-off the national tour of the film, Lom Nava Love, the unflinching story of Black families in inner city Baltimore harnessing their strengths to challenge the systems and institutions that would dictate their realities. Centered on the work of community organizer Shirley Foulks and directed by Youth Resiliency Institute founder Fanon Hill, Lom Nava Love documents Foulks’ engagement with families in public housing and how she uses art to communicate the abilities, strengths and power to effect change that Black families innately possess. After the screening, internationally renowned singer/songwriter Navasha Daya will perform a selection of songs from the film’s soundtrack and Fanon Hill and Shirley Foulks will talk with WEAA radio host Marc Steiner about the creation of the film and how artists can work in communities. Other performers include Mighty Mark, Baltimore club music DJ and producer for for Tt The Artist '06 (General Fine Arts), and Rashad “Hurricane The King” Hawkins. https://www.facebook.com/events/369071910132054/?active_tab=about
