Event Details

Tell Your Friends!
“BOSS Bay Area is hosting the 2nd Annual Black August Block Party. This Block Party & Resource Fair is a representation of where we came from, where we are, where we need to go and how to get there – through music, food, art, culture and political education. BOSS Bay Area is committed to increasing awareness and providing resources, alongside our partners through our violence prevention programs. The event theme this year will be “”STOP THE VIOLENCE””. Last year at BOSS’ inaugural Black August Block Party, we unveiled the ‘Arc of Liberation’ mural – a culmination of art, culture, and political education honoring the heroes and fighters whose shoulders we stand on whose activism we continue today. This year we aim to elevate the conversation by revisiting and honoring the heroes who used their art and commitment to their people to, Stop The Violence. In the late ’80s & early ’90s, there was a movement from East to West to counter community violence with artists, journalists, community leaders, civic leaders and heads of the church coming together for summits, concerts and legislative change. In 1988, hip-hop was at a crossroads. After a series of violent incidents, community violence and anti-blackness from mainstream outlets was at a high. Hip Hop artist, KRS-One formed the, “”Stop The Violence Movement”” – and catapulted the movement with the song, “”Self-Destruction””. Artists like Oakland native, M.C.Hammer and Digital Underground were members of the West Coast All-Stars. The group debuted “”We’re All In the Same Gang””, the West Coast’s contribution to the “”STOP THE VIOLENCE MOVEMENT””. This community-wide event will allow visitors, artists, and organizations to come together to celebrate and respond to some of the needs of our community. BOSS Bay Area Neighborhood Impact Hubs will provide information and resources about housing, violence prevention, mass incarceration and other services offered in Oakland neighborhoods. BOSS Bay Area Partners will be present to provide more resources – expungement, economic empowerment, health, employment and much more.”
