Black August Back to School Field Day
August 28 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
The Black August Back to School Field day will be held in collaboration with the Black August Organizing Committee (BAOC) and Backpack Drive sponsored by B.O.O.K.B.A.G.S EXPRESS. In continuance of the theme Demand Justice through community-building, organizing, and keeping us safe, this family-friendly event will consist of guided wellness and martial arts lessons, games, and giveaways for youth, as well as a ceremony for graduating seniors. The event will further provide a space for attendees to express and learn about our concerns, challenges, and remedies in the community. The event’s goal is to embrace and demonstrate the Black liberation legacy of communal practices, love, and support for Blacks and the oppressed lumpen, or underserved/under-resourced populace.
